Make yourself 4 or 5 bags of different size from old blue jeans or similar cloth, doubling up on thickness would be nice. Fill them with clean dry sand an fergit awl dis nonsense.

A cheap and easy recoil absorber that I use at the range is an old bath towel. Folded with 4 layers, hang it over your shoulder. takes the bite out of hot loads w/big conicals.

i shoot with no bags on my led sled. i like the way it adjusts and takes a little sting out. works great for me.its a nice step up from sand bags.

ORIGINAL: saxman1

I just got back from Gander Mountain
I took my Lead Sled Back,When in doubt,throw it out.

I will get some bags like have been pictured earlier in this post and absorb the recoil myself.

I looked for rings and bases for my new CVA and they didnt have squat
Hardly any choices for 45 cal bulletts either,no BH 209,no Blackpowder
Thats a big store for a whole lot of nothin.
Went to the archery dept to grab a few things,it's all for right handed shooters,so I went to look for clothes and boots,nothing for a guy like me almost6'8" and wear a size 16 this is discrimination.I get tired of all internet shopping just to find out it doesn't fit and I have to send it back and try again.

I feel better now
And I thought I had problems!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow! You don't usually see this kind of bickering on the ML forum. I haven't read this postsince page 1 because the topic didn't interest me, but when I saw 10 pages I had to check it out. What a waste of time reading all of that. I hope everyone works out their differences and finds a way to get along.

All of this typing should have been about range reports and new purchases. Lets get out and do some shooting.

Sure Lead sleds CAN cause problems, Flinching is a whole different problem, Flinching comes from the fear of missing
Thats why archer's ,trap shooters ,rimfire shooters have it,
