Sorry im excited and full of stupid questions so I was thinking I would get them all out of the way. What type of bench rests do you guys use for you pistols? I plan on doing alot of practicing and want to get off on the right foot. Thanks in advance..
The blast from the cylinder on a revolver will tear a bag up depending on where the gun is rested. I can't recall the name of the rest I use, but it uses a y shaped steel rod rubber coated rest for the barrel.
If you shoot a encore 12" 44mag. on bi-pods. Will it shoot different when held by hand or on a rest, like off a shooting rail in a tree stand
Any Time you hold most revolvers or SP's in a different "MANNER" you should expect a difference in the P.O.I. When working up a load I use a good rigid rest. For sighting in for use in the field I like to shoot the gun in as close to the same "MANNER" as what I will use the gun in the field. In any case, one should shoot a group in a few different "MANNER's" to assure there is a consistant Point Of Impact.
Many years ago Outters had a rest exactly like that one. I made one very similar to it and the guys at our Indoor Range liked it so much one of our members made 3 or 4 that we keep at the Indoor Range. They get used a lot when guys are sighting in new optics on their .22 Handguns, and actually work quite well.
T/C Handguns, One good shot for your moment of truth !
