Jamie,

Since so many have looks it this post and said nothing and I see you have a nice deer in your avatar and all I figure you are from the west, so.... Henry Rempel in Calgary makes a good inexpensive rest. He made a cast years ago and makes rests in steel or aluminum, plus speed screw, windage tops or fixed nonadjustable tops, chamber jobs, pillar bedding, the list goes on. His rests are square and true. My steel one weights over 25 lbs I think. Around $225 or $250 I think but ask HR. The stuff I've seen at No SaleSports is JUNK. HR also makes the ski bi-pod that holds as steady as any rest I've used from the prone at long range.



Above pic is HR Steel rest with 3 different sized windage tops and a speed screw, all made by HR and below it is ready to shoot...



And below is his ski pod.. on his 6BR rifle at Homestead range...


I for one highly recommend HR
