Re: shooting bags

I use the Caldwell dead shot front rest. I've had several bags built for me of different sizes and have filled them with everything from sand to pvc pellets. In the end I go back to the dead shot front rest filled with untreated corn cob media (its the lightest filler I have used that gives consistent results), and a hanes sock filled with 2lbs of lentils for a rear bag. The best rest is the one you use.

Check out the DOG GONE GOOD bags. They are made in Oregon. I love mine.

Re: shooting bags

I use the bullsbag all the time. Mine is filled with walnut hulls. Its nice the way it really pinches your gun in place for steady shooting. I made a little box to set it on, which works out just right with a small rear bag.

I highly recommend the bulls bag. Get one and grab a sack of walnut hulls from the bird section of your local mega pet store, and a funnel from the kitchen....

Re: shooting bags

+1 on the dog gone good bags. I have 2 and they are great.

Shooting bags and rifle rests, by "dog-gone-good"

I don't want to hijack the tread, but I looked at the Caldwell products when they first came out and thought they were 2nd rate at best. What do you guys (and girls) think of there quality now.

+1 on the dog-gone-good bags. Check out the medium, pricey but work well.

Re: shooting bags

I have a Bulls Bag. This is my second one. The wife ran over the first one with the lawn mower ... don't ask ... This one just happens to have a logo on it. I filled mine with rice.
