    Hi,

    I am nearing completion of a .223 rifle build with a MDT ESS Aluminum chassis. My stock is more oriented to PRS but I plan to use it for benchrest and (very) occasionally prone firing. The front of my rifle will be supported by an Atlas bipod. I'm currently shooting for recreation only, so I competition imposed limitations on weight or configuration.

    I know 'best' rear bag is heavily subjective but I'm trying to keep my expense below $70 and even at that price point there's a lot to choose from. Anyone have good experience with a rear bag under that price point?

    PS-My butt stock is more hook-shaped than traditional, which may lend itself better to one shape than another.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Protektor has a number of rear bags within your price range. Call them with your particulars and they can recommend the best model for your needs.

    I ended up with a Red Tac Gear Ultimate Pillow. It's filled with poly pellets that make it shapeable and it was about $50/shipped. I like it quite a bit.

    I have a protektor. Spent a bit more than 70$ because I wanted the special slippery version but I'm happy with it.

    Im looking for a rear bag also. I see the protectors on ebay for 37.00 unfilled. Looks like unfilled leather. I plan to shoot f class open i think? I work at a BOPP manufacture so i have access to poly pellets for free, but sand is cheap also. What would be best for me as far as bag and filler. My stock is a hs prescion that came factory on my savage LRP.

    Thank you

    Paver sand found at lowes. Leave the poly pellets for position bags not any actual rifle rest.
