Caldwell® The Lead Sled® FCX™ Shooting Rest
Great Shooting Rest!
This is by far the best shooting rest I have used. It virtually removes all recoil and shooter error and makes zeroing big rifles fun instead of painful and frustrating. The joystick allows for quick and precise adjustments without having to fiddle with a bunch of levers and dials. I was able to zero in with less than 5 shots and then maintained a .25" group or less @100yds then @200yds with a .300 WSM and got the same results with the .308 in under 45 min. They guy in the next booth could not believe his eyes. He was using a lower quality rest that was apparently moving around on him too much and could not get any desired results. After seeing my results he asked if I was military trained!!!LOL.

WELL Worth the Money
I needed a bench rest and was going to purchase another Lead Sled product, when a friend gave me a few extra dollars for my birthday to buy what I really wanted and I got this. I debated whether it was worth the extra money.
It has saved me so much time in fine tuning my guns. Gone are the minutes of screwing the base up or down and trying to make minute adjustments to find the perfect spot. The first gun I sighted in I got into position in about 5 seconds. I thought "That's it? That can't be right". Plus it absorbed the majority of the recoil. I was sighting in an ultra mag which has a tendency to kick like a mule. No problem whatsoever. It took NO time at all.
I got a little frustrated trying to fill the weight bag. There were directions in the box showing a filling tube which does not come with it. I went to my local hardware store and purchased a plastic tube that I attached to a funnel. It took a minute, but I got the bag filled.
It is a little pricey, but if you are looking to save yourself frustration, go with this.

Took this thing out to sight in my CVA muzzleloader, Remington 30-06, and Savage 20 gauge slug gun. Total time it took, maybe 20 mins. This makes sighting in guns SO much easier. When you shoot you don't have to worry it was you moving or something, you just adjust the scope and shoot again. I am putting hole after hole in the bullseye with all three guns at 100 yards.
