Default Lead sled

I use a cleaning vise to sight in a rifle now and then. I got the urge to swap over to a lead sled or one of the other brand sleds.
What works best for you for the $ ??

I have the small lead sled and it works great. Got it on sale for $79 at bps one day.

Just bought a lead sled plus from E Bay for $109.00 and love it. Can put two 25 lb. weights on it if needed. Don't know how I got by without before.

You might want to do some research on some of the gun forums about the lead sled before buying one. Some say it can result in cracked stocks which makes sense if you think about what's it's doing. It's kind of like putting your stock up against a brick wall and shooting the gun.
I've got a plain ol' shooters vise where I feel the recoil. Works fine for me.

If shooting a rifle out of a lead sled cracks the stock, I would blame the stock. I love my lead sled. Best thing I've ever used for sighting in rifles.

Have shot a 308, 30.06, 30/30, 22 and 223 out of mine and no cracked stocks. Im with you Chadd, stock must be bad if it cracks in sled, JMO.

I have the Shooters Ridge version of a lead sled. Sure is handy for sighting in guns that kick like my 6 lb. .308
