Caldwell® Lead Sled® Plus Shooting Rest
In preparation for an upcoming moose hunting trip, I purchased this rest to get the scope on my 300 weatherby mag dialed in. For those shooting heavy loads, I don't have to say how tiring the repeated absorbing of recoil of these weapons can be on ones shoulder. This is the ticket! I was sighted in no time and then fine tuned to put a 5 round group inside of 3 inches at 200 yards. This product actually makes shooting large caliber rounds painless especially if you're trying different loads and sighting in. This was an awesome purchase. Absolutely no buyers remorse on this one.

Big Buck Misser
I have wanted to get one of these for years. I have never had 100% confidence with the MOA of my scopes. I have 8. It seems I was always making allowances in the woods during hunting season. Hold this gun high to the left etc. As a result of this I have missed some really big bucks, some small ones too. I have eliminated all of this with this product. This has allowed me to get zeroed much quicker and as a result cheaper. Some of the ammo I use is almost impossible to find(.284). I made a mounting board for the sled and secured it with hold down straps. I take the board and sled to the range as 1 unit. I then use a C clamp to secure it to the bench. This has allowed me to really tune in the scopes to 200 yds with complete confidence. I am shooting .308s; .284; .45 cal muzzleloader; and 20gauge slug guns. Now all of them are dialed in. Excellent product although if mounting this as I did there is no reason to get one with the adapter for adding lifting weights.

Good product - works as advertised. In lieu of the shot bags and bird shot, I recommend two 25-pound barbell weights which can be purchased at low cost from a used sports equipment store.

Purchased the Lead Slide a couple of weeks ago and used it to sight in my hunting rifle. Works great, but you'll need to purchase weight bags or some other weight source to provide the necessary weight to stabilize the slide. It's fairly heavy but needs the additional weight for stability.
