my shoulder. i dont have one i just use a bean bag to rest the gun on the bench .
I don't use a lead sled. Good way to crack the wrist of a wood stock gun.
I use a forend rest from Bob Hart, but I don't use a lead sled. WA Mtnhunter brings up a good point; it does isolate you or distance you from the recoil, but it eliminates the "cushion" of your shoulder an jeopardizes a good stock. For heavy recoiling rifles, I recommend a "sissy bag", or sandbag between your buttstock and your shoulder.
See above posts. I use a Wichita precision rest with leather owl ear sandbags.
We at the Dog Path gun shop use a gun/vice from
Wal-Mart $16.00 its the best.
Two sand bags.
Cheap gun vice from Wally! Front vice gently holds stock in rubber clamps, three point base rubber pads slide on shot. Not the best method but it works.
I use the origninal Lead Sled. It is one of the best pieces of hunting equipment I have ever purchased. I really enjoy my big rifles a lot more because of it. I can shoot them take them to the range and shoot all I want accurately and without bruising my shoulder. I am not worried about cracking the stock because they do move if you don't weight them down with extra sand bags. If I do crack a stock, I'll just get a better one... it will be worth it. I've fired more than a thousand rounds in the 5,000 foot pounds of energy range off of mine and I'm afraid my shoulder would be mush without the Lead Sled.
