Shoot-it

Shooting bench

13 posts in this topic

Well i decided too make my own bench . I made it heavy I don't plan on moving it I am going too chain it too concrete so nobody can steal it. I used what ever steel I had laying around the base is 3 inch oil pipe and 1 1/2 for the legs . We have river bottom and I made a 100 yard range.I made a big sand mound too shoot into .Yes that is a pillow case full of sand i am cheap....... :lol: It works great my Ruger 270 Win grouped very well I will take a pic tomorrow and post it. That gun in the pic is my Friends old Remington 30-06 i never seen one like it before ,but it shoots good.post-3-1253312670_thumb.jpg

Great job. Nothing is more satisfying than building something with your own hands. Except for maybe building it with your own hands and it turning out right.Jason

Cool shooting bench Johnny! :lol: For a sandbag take the leg off an old pair of Levis and turn it inside out and sew one end shut completely. Sew 3/4 of the other end and turn the leg back right-side out through the hole you left. Fill with sand and sew shut and you'll have a sandbag that will last you forever. A good bench makes all of the difference if you're doing target work. :lol:

Rugged looking bench! It looks as though it will make it through the big one (Earth Quake) ;)

Nothing like having a welder and some steel on hand for those afternoon projects. ;)
You got that right SJ and its also nice when it doesn't cost you anything either... ;) I went out too day and shot 100 yard groups with my factory gun and factory 130 silvertip ammo. post-3-1261340056_thumb.jpg I need a better rest The forend is cradled in the sand bag and the but of the stock is on my shoulder .Theres room for error there.

Get yourself a piece of 4X4 to put your front sandbag up on. Then get a smaller sandbag to let the butt of the gun rest on it will make a big difference.

Hey, those are some pretty explosive bullets! They expanded and disinigrated after hitting the Birtchwood Casey targets, and they didn't even leave a mark on the wood behind it! ;)
