Which Rear Bag?



Log in to see fewer ads
I shoot in several local matches, which are shot primarily from a bench. While I don't particularly like shooting from a bench and would much rather shoot prone, that's not going to happen here.

While many of the shooters are using 1 or 2 piece rests, I prefer shooting from bipods.

For the last year or so, I've shot these matches with a variety of my rifles, everything from Anschutz and KIDD to Kimber and Vudoo.

I've used a cheap set of Caldwell rear bags, and admittedly have had a fair amount of success with them.

My problem with them though, and the reason for this post, is that I do believe using a better rear bag, could make a big difference.

What rear bag would you recommend for use with a variety of stock designs? Ideally, the bag will be used for shooting my Vudoo's, Anschutz, Coopers, Sako's etc...which all have different stocks.

I have 2 different ones I use. One is a rabbit ear rear bag and the other is a small Triad wedge type bag. I also have a couple of squares of wood and some pieces of leather to stack up under the bag. I use different thicknesses to adjust elevation.

Rolltide,

I use a Protector bag At Saltville. https://protektormodel.com/collectio...16216283775066

Mine has Cordura ears. Buy it filled with heavy sand. I would get the one with a handle if I was buying it again.

I also have a Edgewood MiniGator for my Heavy long range centerfire guns. https://www.sinclairintl.com/shootin...prod37936.aspx
Both are hard bottom and came filled with heavy sand.

Mark
