I use it to get on paper as a temporary zero, then transition to a shoulder fired zero. I don't really use one for anything other than that.

I used to use one for working up loads for 8x57, 30-06, 300WM, .54 slug loads. They really make a difference when you are putting a lot of lead downrange at one sitting.

I have the same one. Probably bought it the same time you bought yours. I think they were on sale at Bass Pro. I've only used it once with my Mosin Nagant to save my shoulder. They don't work too well with lever guns. The main reason I don't use it is I don't like lugging it to the range. Too much other stuff to carry.

I had one used it at the range once and hated it . It got put on the bench and used for cleaning and mounting scopes and such , sold it a few weeks ago .

Another reason I stopped using it was I have seen them crack stocks .

I use the lead sled DFT. Itís not bad for dialing in scopes.

^^^ Same here. Makes it a lot easier to get the sight leveled to the rifle, and the windage and elevation bore sighted.

Never used one. Have mounted at least 15 scopes just fine without one. I would like a benchtop rifle holder thing for cleaning, or for holding rifles when mounting scopes, but I'm too... cheap(?) to buy one. https://www.amazon.com/Tipton-181181.../dp/B001AT3SCC

I used mine today and had a hard time getting a sight picture with the 30-06. I don't really like the stock but it's got replaceable parts so you can make it higher or lower. I decided not to use weights with it because people say that you should have recoil for the rifle to fire correctly.

I may sell it cause I really like to use just a sandbag on top of my little shooting table.

The Magpul stock really didn't help my shooting with the 30-06. I'm starting to think it may be the cheap scope the gun came with. I'll put on a better scope and try that.

If I can't get the 30-06 to shoot better I'll get a short action trigger guard and try it with my 308.

If all else fails I'll get my money back and just use the ADL as it is.
