Shooting Rests Wednesday, January 6, 2010 by Mark
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
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.
The X7 is a unique design. It is a multi-purpose shooting rest
that has seven shooting bags in one. At its most complete arrangement
the X7 sits higher than the Bench and Field models, but still locks the
gun in place once secured. The X7 can then be disassembled into its
seven parts and mixed and matched to
varying elevations and shooting rest styles, which also include use
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. My
favorite bag proved to be the X7 because it's higher profile allowed me
to place my non-trigger hand under my trigger hand for a comfortable and
Next time I head to the range I'm going to carry the Bulls Bag
X7 shooting rest and my predator rifles. I want to be sure my gun optics
are zeroed in before I align my crosshairs on an incoming coyote.
