Re: Sand Bags and Rice ???

why waste time with something perishable...you can get the poly-pellets at a craft store for 2$/lb

THey work perfect, are cheap and available, and wont rot...this a'int brain surgery fellas...

YMMV,
JB

My buddy and I share a tumbler and use pecan shells, after a year we use that media for our bags and 're-media.'

Saw dust makes for a very light bag, but don't get it wet

Re: Sand Bags and Rice ???

Ain't brain surgery...that's for sure but sometime you just use what you have. My rice filled bags are cloth and work great. Been using them since 1995 when I started reloading and shooting on a regular basis.

I've since upgraded to a Hart front and Protector rear but still take along the rice bags if I need an extra set of bags for another shooter at the range.
