    I have got one and the only time i use it if i am sighting in something nasty like a light and naked 9.3x62 other than that they are not that comfortable to shoot off. they certainly shut down the recoil but now days with every thing suppresssed or braked they are a little bit obsolete

    yea they do look a little uncomfortable, me and a mate want to sight our rifles in and then run a few brands of ammo through the rifles to find which load suits the best, but would like to remove as much human error as possible

    go old school and cheap, and mount a vice on the back of a ute or where ever.

    Shoot of the bench or ground of a bipod front and sandbag rear and that takes away most of my shooting error down to approx 1/4 moa

    agree with anyanimal, bipod and rear bag is all you need, you will easily be able to see what ammo is terrible and what ammo is decent

    unfortunatly my ute has a wellside, haha otherwise it would have a vice attached to it, which is prob the best way to do it, i get real bad and pulling shots or shaking if i concentrate to hard for to long which is making it hard. im thinking put a vice on the ground and just do it that way to zero and check diff loads

    If the vice is tight enough to hold a decent caliber without any movement it have to seriously mark the stock or break it!

    Probably ok with 22lr etc.

    yea prob could make something up, but the time it'll take plus materials id rather pay someone to do it, next question will be is there anyone in the forum for a job that runs a few diff brands of ammo thru rifles to find the best one??, save me buying multiple packs

    I just did this with my 308 and you won't need that setup to tell what shoots well. Hardest thing is waiting a couple of minutes between shots to eliminate differences from barrel temp!
