Default Bench bags?

Plan on using my CZ 455 .22lr primarily for bench shooting and I am looking for bench bags. Since there are no good stores near me and I have to order over the net, I can't do a hands-on before buying. Any advice here about the best thing to buy or even make? Right now I am using plastic bags filled with kitty litter and then inserted in cloth bags...ok for a temporary solution, but really not very acceptable as a permanent one!
Thanks for any suggestions on brands, dimensions, fill, etc. I am a newbie to bench shooting.

Dusty,

Tennessee "Down Home" shooting bags. Go to Walmart and get you some of that cool looking heavy stock camo material. Then go to the grocery section and get some bags of rice or *small beans "which I use". Leave them in the plastic bag. "Waterproof" Get ye old sewing machine out and make material bags to insert the complete rice or bean bags in and sew them up. You can also sew loops on one end of each bag to put a ring on like a key ring. Why the loop and key ring? I have 18 inch cord with a snap on each end that I can snap on to the rings on the end of the bags. This allows me to carry the (Very Light) bags around my neck when climbing into a deer stand or when I have my hands full. I simply take the cord off when I use them. They are very light and also can be carried in a back pack with no problem. I have two sets of them and they work well on the shooting bench also!
One other recommendation! When sewing your bags sew them on the reverse side and then turn them right side out and then the seems are hidden when you insert the bags and the look good!

Sam's Club.....two 20lb bags of Basmatti rice in burlap bags. If you get stuck at the range, you won't go hungry.
Sorry......I got mine local Ozark Sportsman.

Bank deposit cash bags? Some are made of cloth & they have zippers.
