Thankfully, hunting season is just around the corner for us. In preparation, we always make sure that our rifles are shooting accurately. Sighting in a rifle can be a difficult task without the proper set up. Holding the rifle in position can be hard, especially while sighting in a new rifle like my Ruger 7 mm magnum that I received for Christmas 2015. Fortunately, my husband purchased the Caldwell Lead Sled Plus for me, for my birthday this year. This item is a “must have” item for everyone that shoots a rifle.
The Lead Sled Plus takes most of the recoil out of the shooting process, to be exact, 95%. I still held the rifle firmly in place against my shoulder, but I didn’t have to “bear down” as I would if I was shooting without it. In fact, I found that “bearing down” on the rifle made the sights of the scope move. There is a convenient knob on the front of the Lead Sled Plus that is used to adjust the elevation, with one finger. A tray is located on the bottom of the Lead Sled Plus that holds regular bar bell weights. The weights are not required, but they do help keep the Lead Sled Plus from bouncing while shooting. The weights are not included, but can be purchased at most sporting goods stores. We had two ten pound weights that worked wonderfully to keep the Lead Sled in place. The rests for the rifle are padded and the feet are made of rubber and seem to keep the Lead Sled Plus in place without marking the shooting table.
The Lead Sled Plus can be found in most sporting goods stores, or it can be ordered online at http://www.btibrands.com/product/lead-sled-plus/ with a MSRP of $174.99
