If you have a Rural King close by, they sell an adjustable padded stool that the range I belong to uses at the benches. We cut 5-6 ins off the legs, and it works perfect for all sizes of shooters. When not in use slide in under the bench out of the weather and way. Just throwing it out there. Dan.
I do have a rural king , not far away . when I get to rural king I'll be sure to check out that stool . thanks for the tip .

I bought a couple boards to make a riser , for the stool .

I had a spare nightforce 5.5-22x56 NXS sitting on the shelf so I put it in my tikka t1x. Took it to the range today. It was gusty wind playing hell with my groups but finally got a calm moment and shot this great 200 yard group with CCI standard 40gr ammo that was sorted for rum thickness.

I had a few other rifles I v brought but used the rimfire while I waited on the big rifles to cool. Hitting steel at 200-300 and rocks at 350 against the berm. So much fun lobbing those little 40gr subsonic loads in at longer ranges.
