Anyone have one? I was thinking of ordering one tomorrow. I have been having problems with my shoulder and it is keeping me off the bench. Thought this might be a solution until I figure out what is going on with my shoulder.

They are good for the real nasty kickers, but I hope you already have the bagged shot.
Lead shot prices are really high now.

I was wondering if sand bags would work. I know not as heavy as lead but I figure if I get enough on there it should be ok.

The real nasty kickers are what I need it for.

I see they have two models but have not really studied what the difference between them is?

Went and dugg the ctalog up, to be sure on this.

The DFT model has windage and elevation ajustments basically a BR type rest on the front ie the Rock BR and has rear elevation,and the front cradle is adjustable front to rear.Much better,IMO, over the other version which is basicaally fixed on everything except front elevation.

If I was getting one it would be the DFT. I came to that after looking at both at Gander early in the year.

Worm,

Wondering if it messes up ones "Feel" for the rifle or if the rifles shoot the same off the rest due to this??

I use 4 10# weight plates with some of that rubber gripper stuff you put under rugs between them so they don't slide around.

They look good but I've always worried that the increased resistance to recoil could cause problems with some stocks. I worry that some nice wood stocks might have problems. This may be unfounded though. Right now I need one to hunt with what with my head problem. LOL!
