If so can you tell me what the dimensions are for the tray. I ordered this model (not in yet) instead of the Lead Sled Plus and my whole purpose is to use this with my barbell weights. I am not sure if the regular Lead Sled will hold my 25 lb weights? :(
Steve I have one and don't recomend using weights or sand bags in the tray because it
makes it hard on the stock.
I have heard of people breaking there stocks buy placeing 40 or 50 pounds of weight in
Rifles should recoil some and if you restrain them to much it can damage or brake the stock.
It makes a good shooting platform and buy it's self reduces recoil buy almost 50% .
I carpeted the tray on mine and use it for scope caps , Bolts when cleaning and any other
stuff that I don't want to place on the shooting bench.
Also when I test fire a new rifle I prefer not to restrain the rifle to much especially with a
"BLUE PILL" proof Test load and I just lash/tie the rifle down, use a remote system to fire it
and let it recoil on its own.
I shoot lots of big bores 416s + with out breaks and the lead sled works good just like it is.
Just a recommendation.
