They actually help save scopes as does anything that reduces recoil velocity.
The reason they are rough on stocks are that if two much weight is added (2 or
3 lead shot bags) weighing 25 lbs each they put to much stress on the pistol grip
area some times cracking or breaking it.
I don't use any extra weight because the sled weighs as much or more than most rifles
and the tray makes a handy place to put Ammo,scope covers,reading glasses( for old
timers) if carpeted.
