they're great. they take all the recoil out of the shot so you can shoot all day. Just don't strap the gun in it, the recoil has to go somewhere...

I tried one once and didn't like it much rather have a good sand bag rest.
when I die please don't let the wife sale my guns for what I told her I paid for them

If you have heavy recoil guns be careful, I've seen smokeless muzzleloaders with near max loads and heavy bullets destroy High end Leupold and Zeiss scopes within 3 shots using the sled. Never strap it down.

I have used them. They have been known to destroy scopes. I would much rather use one of caldwells front shooting rests with a small shooting bag in the back. If your rifle kicks that much, get a good recoil pad. If it still kicks too much, get a muzzle break. I can shoot my 300 win mag all day long and never flinch or shed a tear.

Been using them for 10 years and never had a problem. Don't strap the gun down!

Use it every fall to verify zero, then switch to the bipod and shoot.
