Newb needs help breaking in



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi All, I am new to this, not shooting, but bench. I have a Annie 64 F class sporter ( designed for prone) and a Weaver T36.

I intend to use it at my home range. 50 yds mostly. I have noticed that every minute movement becomes exaggerated with the 36x scope.

At present, I have no intentions of competing. Just against my own skill.

I am looking into some sort of "rest" to use. I have a shooting bench set up, and have already tried bipod. I want something more stable.

I am aware my rifle may not be the best tool due to the factory stock, but it is what I have.

Any ideas of a good rest. I am considering to spend up to 3-400 dollars at present for this, but will consider all ideas that will help me.

Thank you for any help

Rich

The best would be something like a Cowan front rest the corect front bag and rear bag.but youre talking $400 to $ 500. Next would be a caldwell rock front rest and correct bags $100 to $150. Next would be this https://www.amazon.com/Caldwell-Tack...s%2C189&sr=8-1.

Also if you put your bipod on a cushion, it helps a lot. Along with a good rear bag.

The front rests ar heavy and a pia todrag to and from the range.

They make attachments for sporter forends that fit into some front rests that make them act like true bench rest stocks , flat bottoms that let the gun slide back on recoil vs jump.

Here’s a couple options from Sinclair. Consider good rests as “infrastructure” that will serve well into the future so I stretched a bit as far as price.

Having windage adjustments is a BIG plus. I like the weight and stability in a heavy rest.

This heavy varmit rest runs at $408.00 plus front bag.

The Competition rest runs higher at $649 plus front bag. Have a all purpose top for the Competition model but highly recommend the 3” BR top. Just add plate for the narrower stocks.

Thank you so much

You are all awesome. Great ideas for me. Yes I have a front track, actually 2 one on bottom and one on the side, not sure why the side one but, it appears if I open my wallet a little wider, I have some great options.

Heck, I paid enough for the gun, scope and rings, may as well pay up and get a good stand too.

I do really appreciate all the ideas.

Now I have some direction.

Be safe

Rich
