    I really like the jagged lava rock my wife throws at me every time I buy a new barrel, trigger, action etc! :)LOL.. Seriously she bought me a Caldwell FCX and it really works to tame the BIG Weatherbys That I work on.

    Caldwell is the one I use...with a sand bag for the butt. Too cheap to NOT have one of them

    ive been selling off some stuff owned by a late friend.
    he has a hart front rest attached to an aluminum plate he used at williamsport.
    the rest of coarse can be removed from the plate. the plate is shaped and finished well with several hand slots for carrying and leveling knobs.
    we will sell it for $200 plus shipping. it could be picked up also if your in the area.
