I would like to help you with that but I shoot mine mostly standing off my left hand.

I can't believe you have gotten no reply.

Give it some time, someone will help. I can't, because my stock has been modified and I don't use a Rock BR rest. Sorry.

Same here. My 'front bag' is the shooting glove on my left hand.

I left BR some years ago due to the expense and frankly, boredom.
But I seem to remember guys were shooting the 82G off rests topped with a bag called bunny ears, or rabbit ears or something like that. It was rather flat in the middle with high sides to help stabilize the gun's high forend.

If you want to have some fun, bring that G down to the Offhand Matches here and shoot her for what she was built to do best

All the best,
Bob4BVM

Hope I'm not stepping in it big time, but here goes...

You have a couple of options IMHO

Option one. Protecktor #2 bag:http://protektormodel.com/index.php?...&products_id=2

If I went this route, I'd order the slick material added. Have used this bag with great results.

Option Two: http://www.whiddengunworks.com/product/track-plate/

Very nice. Have used these with great results.

Option three:

http://www.mwerksllc.com/plates.php

He does not advertise plates for the Kimber 82G. Who the heck would shoot a Kimber 82G if they were interested in hitting anything...But anyway, call Jeff Madison and ask for a 2.5 degree bottom plate. It will match the Kimber's stock profile. Jeff's a great guy and he'll make you one. Or, just order a Win 52D bottom plate. Pretty darn close in degrees.

Both of these options require you to use a flat 3 inch front bag. Both Edgewood and Protecktor make those. I like both, but usually use this:

http://protektormodel.com/index.php?...roducts_id=265

Option four:

https://ads.midwayusa.com/product/32...-9-to-13-black

Work very well. Will need the adaptor to fit this to the bottom rail. If I remember correctly, its an HB6 item number. But again, my memory isn't the greatest.

Option five:

http://www.bullsbag.com/Default.asp

Have had great success with this thing too!

Actually, have used each and every one of these options on my gun. And like them all.

Really depends on your budget, and what your expectations are. Is it for fun, plinking, semi serious, or formal scored BR match shooting? That would determine which I'd go with.

Of course, there are other side trips you can take. Say, you want the best you can get, but on semi sane budget...

Here's what I'd do. Take that Rock BR rest, call Dan Greenlaw and tell him you want one of his adjustable tops that would fit your rest. http://drgreenlawmachining.com/adjus...ag_windage_top

Then, call Jeff Madison at Mwerks LLC, and tell him you have a Kimber 82G that you want to soup up. You will need a bottom plate with a 2.5 degree angle made, and ask if he would do it for you. He will, well, I guess he will. I know at one time he would make whatever angle you wanted. He's a great guy to talk to. If you can, order one of those bottom plates. If he won't or can't make one, get a Win 52D bottom plate from him.

Then, just attach the plate to the bottom rail of your gun. Don't need any accessories to do this. Put the Greenlaw top on your Caldwell rest, and then go shoot some serious targets! With a Kimber 82G!



Or, you could just buy a#2 Protecktor bag...

Really up to you. But I would recommend thinking it through. What do you really want from the gun? What about future ventures? Maybe you have other guns, maybe you might want to take this shooting from a bench a little further...Those adjustable tops are nice. And you can use a lot of different rifles. Heck, I shot my stock Kimber without any bottom plate off of a Greenlaw top many times with some pretty nice results.

Whatever you do, good luck, and have fun.

Hope this helped. And if you think I'm a bit harsh on your rifle of choice, I'm just jerking your chain. I like mine a lot. Can usually hit what I'm aiming at. And it really didn't matter what I used as to rests. Just have to realize that sometimes different rests require you to shoot or hold your rifle differently. I've shot scoped, apertures and formal BR with my rifle off of these rests. And again, never really made myself look stupid using any of these.

Good luck

Kenny
