Ok here is a question I have been tossing around in my head for a while. Does anyone use a lead sled or other similar recoil stopping contraption. I do not but always wondered if a rifle sighted in on one of those keeps the same poi when shot from the shoulder. In my mind the rifle will shoot different between the two

In my experience, P.O.I does change, how dramatic depends on how consistent one shoulders the gun each time.

I have one. I used it to sight in three guns, 12 ga..slug gun, 50 cal muzzle loader and a .243. Once I was in the 10 circle or better I then would shoulder shoot it off a bench support. Those two larger bore guns tend to put a welp on me if I shoot them alot and that's why I have a lead sled.
My accuracy was still good or good enough to hunt with but maybe not good enough to compete with a marksmen. :shifty:

Well I can answer my own question now. My youngest son Rick was at a NWTF banquet and got a lead sled type of rest. This one is a Boyt and has a nice padded foreend adjustable feet fore and aft and a fine tune adjustment what I really like is how the rear is made. It has two leather covered steel uprights to hold the buttstock and leather across the back to stop the rifle but lets it recoil a little. That should make it more like shooting from the shoulder than a solid metal stop at the back. We only tried it with a 25 souper which is also known as a 25-308. It worked well with that rifle. He left it here so I may try it with my muzzleloader as I know how it shoots from the shoulder. More later.
