    IMG_20180827_104314279.jpg IMG_20180827_104359117.jpg I am looking at the PROTEKTOR Bags I shoot local matches .We shoot 235 yards out to 1000
    yards.I shoot off the bench.My rifle has McMillian MBR stock,and Henry Rempel bipod.I the bag I am using now is full of the plastic pellets and not very good for this kind of shooting.I am looking at the sloped Dr Bag ,what is the purpose of having a sloped bag?I am also looking at the flat top bags as well ,I think the PROTEKTOR MODEL - DELUXE BB would work too.I want something that is solid.Any advice thanks

    Sloped bags are intended to be used with stocks that have angled toe lines (the bottom of the butt stock), flat with stocks that have no angle. One thing that you should be aware of is that bags are available with different spacing between their ears. I would suggest that you call Protector and ask them what spacing has been found to be the best fit for your stock, and you can make a separate inquiry on this board, or perhaps on the long range benchrest board on Benchrest Central.

    here: flat top DR bag

    http://protektormodel.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=255

    don't order it on line. call them up and tell them what stock you have. they will suggest an ear spacing. i usually go with mid ears, height wise. you can also talk to them about options such as what material the ears are made of and a carry handle option. i usual go with heavy sand. they are nice and helpful folks

    I have 2 Protector bags love them both. Measure your stock and tell them what type of shooting your doing and I’m sure they are willing to help. I think the MBR stock would have 5/8 ear space in between the ears or the bag, and have a flat bottom. If the stock has any pitch in it get a ftr bag which has pitch for elevation when using a bipod. The turnaround is very fast. Hope this was helpful

    I shoot off a bench with a front rest so I don't have any experience shooting this stock off a bipod.
    I have a MBR stock and the bottom is slightly sloped (specs says it has a 3 degree slant).

    I got the following Protektor bag for my MBR:

    Model: Dr. Bag
    Flat or Slope: Custom slope to closely match the MBR slope.

    Ear Spacing: 3/8". (1/2" inch might work too?)

    upload_2018-9-2_9-53-4.png

    Ears: Rabbit Ears (something I wanted to try). Protektor said most common are mid-ears.
    Ear Material: 3M silver slick material
    Fill: Heavy Sand in bag. Regular Sand in ears.

    ymmv....

    I suppose one could make do with a sloped bag under a flat-bottom stock, but not vice versa.
