"sand" bag filler ??

1993 Views 34 Replies 20 Participants Last post by  itschuck
i like using sand filled old jeans legs but those sand bags are getting too heavy, about six, seven, to be carrying back and forth from the shed to the table. have read here maybe that cat litter and the stuff used to absorb oil in the garage is about the same. cant rem the price diff. also cat litter turns to "concrete" when it gets wet. maybe, i need a little red wagon. lol.

anyone use the oil absorber? how does it work in cut-off jeans legs??
suppose putting it in a baggie first may be a good idea. stable enuff?

thanks all.

I use wheat in my home made bags. Bit lighter than sand cause it doesn't pack down as dense but I'm able to nestle it down nicely to make a nice rest. Might be worth a try. I use it in both my front and rear bags that I made.

Hope it helps.

Cheers, Shandy
Shandy,

Never heard that one before, good idea. If the shooting sucks, you can always go home and make bread! :D :D :D

hey ken,if you are shooting comp you may need to look at the rules for SAND BAG FILLER.here in oz its got stuff you and can`t use.
hotdogdogau,

I do shoot competition and the rules definately call for sand only in the bags.

However, nice warm bread with butter, still tastes better than a mouthfull of sand. :D
