applications on a tactical team beyond bench shooting and weapons zeroing.”

Shooting Rests (10" Field Bag Tree Camo/Tuff-Tec shown) Wednesday, January 6, 2010 by Mark Olis One of the most satisfying feelings is going to the shooting range and shooting well. On the flip side, one of the most frustrating feelings is going to the shooting range and shooting poorly. There are a number of factors that can affect an individual's shooting, such as gun optics not being tightly secured, shooting a particular ammunition that your rifle doesn't group well with, improper trigger pull, etc. However, if you get all of these other aspects right you still can't consistently shoot well without a good shooting rest.
In a quest to find the perfect shooting rest, I've tried many different variations. Some focus on recoil reduction, and others clamp into a vise and so on. Still, the main objective of a rest is to provide a solid, steady shooting platform.
I recently tried out several options of Uncle Bud's Bulls Bags shooting rest. The bags are filled with cat litter, which helps absorb shot vibration, which in turn can help accuracy. I tried the Bench model; the Field model, which is a smaller version of the bench model; and the X7 shooting rest bag.
The Bench and Field shooting rest models have a butterfly, four-chamber design. Each chamber is filled with cat litter. The top two chambers work like a vise-grip once the rifle is placed between them. This gives you a solid hold and the entire length of the bag is contacting the forearm of the rifle instead of two different points-of-contact. By reducing the points-of-contact the shooting rest bag is reducing the pounds per square inch of pressure at the contact point during the recoil—helping maintain better accuracy. I used all three shooting rest designs a couple of weeks ago. Each model provided one of the most solid shooting rest I've ever shot off of. At 300 yards I was able to wring out 1 1/2-inch groups with my .270 Win. using 130 grain GMX tipped Hornady ammo.
Product Overview: This shooting rest category makes available Five choices in our Field style rifle rest. You can pick from THREE 9 1/2" shooting rest models with suede tops and TWO 10" models with Tuff-Tec/Sure-grip rubberized tops that are great for tactical shooting. All shooting rest models come with the BULLS BAG gold embroidery brand logo proudly displayed on both sides of the shooting rest.
Don't be fooled by us calling them "Field" models, because these provide excellent portability, weighing in at 14-16 pounds when filled with *media (*Cat-litter, walnut, corncob media, and polymer beads, etc.) or nearly 25 lbs with a dry playschool sand. These are a convenient size and light-weight when changing your shooting position in the field. The patented butterfly hinge action creates a gun vise-grip by locking the rifle into place with our rifle rest. This creates a rock-steady platform used to provide a superior shooting foundation when on the bench and while testing loads.
Our shooting rest design does not require any rear support that creates additional unwanted pressure–points. They reduce felt-recoil and muzzle-jump by effectively absorbing harmonic vibration. Not like a metal shooting rest, this one-bag bench rest will not negatively change your point-of-impact while on the shooting bench or in the field. Our products are backed by our Lifetime Guarantee to outperform all others in shooting rest Accuracy and Repeatability.
