    Can anyone out there reccommend a source for wide, flat sandbags suitable for a 70+ lb rifle? I'm looking for something I can set on a chunk of channel-iron that I'm bolting to a Rock rest. My stock has two round steel rails about 6" apart that need to be supported on a sandbag for Williamsport rules. I know somebody makes what I need, just don't know where to look.

    Better yet, call Bruce Baer (717) 349-4077

    He has what you need in any size and will be cheaper.

    Probably better yet, call the Protector bag comapny in Galeton, PA where they are made. I don't have that number, but I'm sure information can get it for you.

    You can try Hart and Son in PA also at--570-752-3655.

    Thank-you very much for the information. With any luck I'll have a heavy rifle ready for next year's competitions [​IMG] frankenstein
