Shooting Bench Rest for Rifles and Shotguns

With a benchrest, the rifle sits atop a front and rear rest. When shooting competition the rules may differ. The rests may be two separate rests or one connected rest. The shooting bags sit atop a sturdy table. The table usually has a bench attached along the side and explains the name benchrest.

Sitting on the bench, with the rifle solidly positioned on the rest or shooting bags, helps with accuracy. The idea is that everyone shooting this way has the same advantage. By shooting on a solid platform or table using a shooting bag or two the competition can be a matter of millimeters.

If you aren’t shooting competition and only shoot to hunt then a benchrest can help you understand just where your rifle is shooting. Using the bench and bags for rifles will eliminate most of the shooter’s error from the shot leaving you with the most accurate knowledge of where your rifle is hitting. This is vital before hunting season so that you have the confidence that your rifle is going to perform and hit its mark.
