Re: Bullsbag shooting rest questions
I have one that I bought a few years ago and used a couple times. I didn't like it very well. The main reason for dislike was the fact that when my rifle was settled into the bag I couldn't cycle the action and would have to lift the rifle out and cycle then settle it back in for the following shot, and sometimes the rifle didn't get back in the same exact place which would affect accuracy. This translated to me that the BB was causing excessive pressure points on the gun. I will say the rifle was steady while shooting off this bag, but I don't use it anymore and went back to a short bi-pod and a rabbit ears rear rest. I'm going off subject a little here, but the most solid shooting platform I have ever used was heavy sand bags. I would get the rifle on the bags so that I didn't have to really hold it on target. With light kickers I would just put my shoulder behind the rifle and use a finger on the trigger. I once shot a five shot group with a Ruger M77 all-weather in 243Win using this method that was too small for me to measure, it looked like one bullet hole in the paper target. The big issue with the sand bags was I didn't like lugging the bags around. They were made from the legs of old denim jeans and I used three of them in this set-up. Anyway, I would not recommend the bulls bag.
