I agree with your last sentence. I couldn't get behind the gun, the seats wouldn't go high enough. Basically had to stand crouched over, no cheek weld. A good front rest and a Edgewood rear and front bag your set for life.

Re: Lead Sled

I have used one for several years with muzzleloader and shotgun slugs with no appreciable change at distances commonly associated with these type of weapons. A friend who sighted his .270 WSM at 200 yds from his bench without the sled then shot from my bench with a sled and saw no change. His rifle continued to group well out to 400 yds. with the sled. This is one rifle on one day however.
