I have just started shooting bench rest w/M1A. I use an adjustible steel rest w/padding. I see shooters using shooting bags filled with? There are so many types and a back one too. Some look too low, maybe for prone. The bags look to be a more stable platform. Any suggestions from you experienced folks would be appreciated. Also what kind of fill.

I made some cheap shooting bags out of empty shot (shotgun shell lead bb's for reloading) canvas bags. Filled them with floor Hi Dry (clay absorption material) wired the ends shut and wrapped the exposed wire with electrical tape. They worked great, practically free.
I am a reloader i recycle the old media out of my brass polisher. I put it in plastic bags and i make the bags out of socks and old blue jean leags. If i don't have any old media on hand i use kitty letter.
