Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good shooting rest! I got this last Christmas and since then I have sighted in three rifles and used it for recreation and it is a very efficient shooting rest. It doesn't block the recoil completely but it is still not very bad at all compared to shooting the guns without a rest. Shooting with this rest I managed to shoot a 1 inch group at 75 yards with my 30-06. I also used it for my 22 which has no kick at all but at 50 yards I shot ten rounds within a circle the size of a dime. This rest Is great and will stay with my gun collection for a very long time. I will use it to sight in every single gun that I buy in the future. January 22, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Save you money I used this to sight in a 30 06. I had 25 pounds on the sled and it jumped up off the table every shot. I could use it to sight in but not with ease. I think something with less recoil would work fine. November 11, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Product Review by CBBowling is inaccurate. Weight bags are only $12.99 and can be filled with sand, and sand is cheap. Very sturdy and well made rest. Great value for the price. September 1, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Quality Sled but additional purchases DISAPPOINT The sled is nice, but be warned you have to buy the lead bag separately at a price of about $20, and then you have to buy the lead which is about $60-$70 for 25 pounds. By that time, you've spent as much money in the weight bag as you have the sled. January 16, 2013

No, see my review. If you want a lead filled Caldwell bag, expect to spend another $90.

I wanted to know if there is enough clearance to cycle thru rounds with out dismounting the rifle of the site. I use a marlin 336 and a Henry 22 and have had issue with other rest. I want to make sure before I buy another rest that is useless for a lever action shooter.

Plenty of room for your 336 or even an AR15 with a 30 round magazine. I totally recommend this rest for lever guns.

Im not really looking for a lot of recoil reduction, I just want to know if this will hold up to this large of a round or if going up in the model line would be better for big calibers.

A: 
Not sure about a Rossi single shot specifically, but I used it with my ruger 10/22, pretty much a youth sized gun, and the process went very smooth. The only downfall to shooting a single shot gun on this rest is that if it's a break action, you have to un-velcro the barrel from the forearm rest between shots to open the breech and reload... Not terrible, but not as easy as a semi-auto or bolt action.

Yes. I shot 10 rounds of the Hornady SST 12 ga. 2 3/4", and the recoil was definitely reduced. I did use a 25lb bag of lead shot in the tray. My firearm is a Maverick 88 w/ Mossberg 24" rifled cantilever barrel.

A: 
You actually strap the entire riflle in the Lead Sled, it holds both the forearm and butt of the rifle in a consistent placement for repeated firing. The Handy Rest allows you to place the forearm of the rifle on it while you manage butt placement. The Lead Sled is much larger, heavier, and awkward; you need a larger flat surface to use the Lead Sled, but it is better for sighting in scopes.

Most of gun's recoil is unfelt by the shooter using this...unless really large magnum rifle is being fired.
