If you do much shooting in the Prairie Dog Towns out west, you need some type of shooting bench. I wanted a bench that had the following atributes:
Easy to carry
Cheap to build
Would allow use of a professional “benchrest” front rest.
The first requirement is all relative. As long as I can throw it on top of the Jeep or in the back of the Pick-Up, I’m a happy camper. I would set a cost of less than $200 for the second. The third specification took a bit of head scratching. And the last meant Three legs of a very sturdy nature with the seat not attached to the bench. Every bench I’ve tried with the seat attached had way to much movement for accurate distance shooting.
Here’s what I came up with:
I did a quick series of photographs showing how to install a prefinished, Midway sourced, grip cap on the CZ American or the Cooper Model 21 Varminter.

found a few folks that have been doing a lot of shooting and reloading
for the 5mm Craig. One of them offered to write this section for me. As
it turns out he got really tied up with work and family and just can’t
get to it. So you’ll have to put up with me!
Let’s get started. Remington introduced two rifles chambered

Remington Magnum. It was supposed to put the nails in the coffin of the
then new Winchester 22 Magnum. Yeah right! They were only produced for
four years with approx. 32,000 total rifles produced. Two versions. The
591 was a clip fed rifle and the 592 was tube feed.
A couple of years ago I got involved with brake development and experimentation. This was purely for my own edification. I’m just a hobbiest and needed something to do! I bought a brand new Savage 112 in 308 with laminated stock and SS fluted barrel to be used as a test bed. I threaded the
AHH, the Ruger #1! Not a finer production gun can be had for under $600. Period! Look at the wood Ruger uses. How about that hand cut checkering. Look at the blueing. This is Bill Ruger’s baby! You can’t bring one to the range without people going crazy over it! Put it in their hands.
Once again, “A great time was had by all!” This was my third PDC. As we did last year and the year before, my friend Paul Picard, drove up from Florida to Massachusetts and a few days later we headed west. This year we had a “new guy” with us. Another friend of ours, Paul
