Rear bag



Log in to see fewer ads
What rear bag are y’all using? I’ve bought several through the years and really haven’t found a one size fits all , and hate carrying half the gun room with me to the range. At the moment I’m using a Caldwell br with a Greenlaw top front rest

jrgreene,

I have these three rear bags/rests and alternate them at times.

Pic #1:
ABRA mechanical rear rest, made by Joe Chacon. Delrin rear spool, infinitely adjustable. Delrin spool width doesn't quite fit my Kelbly BRFB stock though.... fits my other wood stocked rifles ok .... Almost always gets your rifle back to the same POA on the delrin spool.


Pic #2:

Left:
I think I use the SEB Bigfood more than the others, so I might gravitate to that bag because it's big and heavy and doesn't move at all. Slick ears are ....slick.... I also use a dead bottom if the rear area is uneven, or if I need more rear height to aim downwards to the target.

Right:
Edgewood Minigater (tall) with slick ears. It's a toss-up with the SEB as far as being stable. Also with a dead bottom for uneven benches or to get more height.


Get the slick ears, it's only a few more bucks for whatever brand you get.... it's worth it.
Get heavy sand from Brownells..... because it's heavy.......

Thanks for the replies. I have seen those mechanical rear rests, but never used one. I do like the idea of that, looks like the tracking would be way better. I did a quick search on google, and it don’t look like anybody has them in stock. Can I ask where you bought yours?
Also, where does a person buy the Seb Bigfoot? I’ve looked online and see lots of reviews etc, but nobody selling them. Thanks

Edit: I emailed Ernie and got a reply right back, got a Seb Bigfoot with 3m ears ordered from him 🙂

Joe Chacon's mechanical rest can be found here, and sometimes Killough's carry them.

https://autobenchrestassociation.com...chanical-rest/

The rest is stable and slides back to POA really well.

Be forewarned that the "factory finish" is rough, and it takes a few nights of elbow grease with Flitz paste to get it nice & shiny like mine.

The ABRA rest seems to be out of stock now.... try and email Joe Chacon at [email protected]. I emailed Joe Chacon when it was out of stock, and he said he gets them quite regularly and consistently......... I got mine in about 2 weeks. The price is the same as when I got mine in April 2018... so there's no increase.


Ernie is personable and dependable. I got mine through Ernie. You'll get your SEB Bigfoot real soon. You'll see that the slick ears are ..... slick !

Have both a Protektor and Seb bags.

IMHO I think the Seb Baby Bag is the better, or it suites my rifle better.

Main parts are aluminum. Some brass parts as you can see, as well as iron screws, delrin spool, etc.

If you had one of these rests in front of you, I think an above-average machinist could make one.............

Make sure you post something here after you get your SEB Bigfoot from Ernie.....

Also, please tell us your efforts to obtain an ABRA rest from Joe Chacon...............

Shot this from that setup. That is just a cheap Caldwell Rock front rest with the 4" slick silver front bag. Can I do it again? I doubt it. But once is good enough for me.
