I use a small sock with small grain aquarium charcoal. Weight is low, and you can use it to soak up odors from your stinky boots too.

    For no-holds-barred KD shooting, I use a leather rear sand bag filled w/ heavy zircon sand. Lookin' to upgrade to an Edgewood cordura/leather bag this year.

    What I throw in my pack is a Redman Tactical beanie bag - filled w/ poly beads and weighs about 1.5#. He also makes bigger sizes (aka the 'Tactical Pillow') that I've been considerin. A little heavier (3.5#) but more comfy for when you are on the gun for an extended period.

    From time to time I've used a shooting glove inside a heavy shooting mitt... works like the aforementioned fist, only way better. I been accused of 'cheating' by some individuals over that one...

    field bag preference

    I have used my fist, my jacket, a rock or anything handy. The two purchased products that I have used are the "Snipers bean bag" and the Holland field bag...It always seems that the bean bag would work better but in the field I usually go with the Holland product because it is firmer
    Holland's Gunsmithing & Shooters Supply click on shooters products...They are made by Doggone good products http://www.dog-gone-good.com/holland.jpg
    Sniper Bean Bags for the bean bag Good luck

    I do not use a rear support. I get a steady hold with my sling, I have found that getting back to basics from when I was in the service always works best for me. I use my leather 1903 sling standing, seated, and prone. Sling up, find NPOA, check my breathing and send the round

    I used the Redman on my last hunt and liked it a lot. It's very steady when I squeeze it to adjust elevation, carries in my cargo pocket easily and doesn't weight too much. The picture is when I used it on my antelope hunt this year. The antelope is the small white dot on the far hillside.

    I just use a simple sock filled with rice. Not quite as good as sand but much lighter
