Front and rear rest suggestions



Log in to see fewer ads
I current have a Harris Bipod, Caldwell Rock Jr and Caldwell Universal Rear Shooting bag. I like the bipod but Iím shoot sure if itís most suitable option from shooting off of a bench for groups. The Caldwell front rest, to me, is not very sturdy or repeatable. If that makes any sense. I donít shoot bench rest. Nothing against BR. Iíve just never had the opportunity. I like shooting my rimfires mostly. I would like to start shooting the 25 and 50 yard scoped rifle games over in the other RFC threads. What front and rear rests would you guys/gals suggest? Unfortunately, I donít have an unlimited budget. Maybe $250-300 for both. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Edit: after I posted this realized I shouldíve searched other posts and avoided the redundancy. I also realized this might be the wrong place. Iím 46 and think Iím losing it already.

I have two different styles of the Caldwell front rests. Either will work, but the bags they came with will not fit the stocks on my rifles. Appropriate sized bags are just as important as the rest itself.

Read, reread and then read again the instructions for your Caldwell rock Jr. It should be fine for what you are wanting to do. You need to understand how to adjust the rest. And your rear bag will be ok also. Do not go out buying stuff that you don't need. It's the same with any equipment..... learn how to use it properly. JMT
