I put the Apache in my BTVS. For me, the kit was well worth it. The trigger is down to a crisp 1.5 lbs. I shoot off the bench, so this works well for me.

It was fine for me. I bought a Bald Eagle ultimately, but I keep both rests set up. The Bald Eagle is for rifles with wide forearms, the Rock BR is for my sporters. Of course you can swap the bags...

I have a variety of 455's and they are fun rifles to shoot and tinker with. Mine tend to like the European bullets - Eley, RWS, and Lapua. I shoot mine scoped from a bench, mostly. Although I have...

Sorry you had that experience Mike. Sounds like a pain. What I like about the shim system is that I don't need a gunsmith to make it work.

I have used both on Ruger's Mk pistols. 2x (of 2.5x) is about my max offhand. After that, scope movement becomes a distraction. I currently have a 3-9 Nikon that I am using for 50 yard shooting...

My solution was to go to a .222. A little less powder on the case, but very soft-shooting compared to its slightly more powerful cousin. Great groups at 100 yards . . .
