    Bench testing tip

    This is to protect damage to the rifle when zeroing off a bench. Instead of laying the gun on it's side in between shots, get some of the rubber jawed plastic clamps sold by DIY/Homebase for clamping woodwork.
    Clip the jaws onto the front of the stock/receiver and it acts as a bipod, keeping the gun upright 'til the next shot.

    One of JDP's many tips

    I use a gunsmiths maintenance centre which I bought for 22.95, it's a plastic tray with adjustable rubber jaws, not only can use it for working on your gun, it also makes an excellent bench rest for sighting in etc.

    Thank you Mick,

    Being new I need useful tips like this.

    Cos when you are not sure what you are doing when zeroing in a new rifle, it can take rather a long time

    These are worth every penny for serious bench resting particularly with a rear bag

    The plastic jawed clamps are better value.Plus, you can use them as clamps.
