Shooting Mat Help

Recommended Posts

So over the last few shoots I have learnt so much, and I had a tough lesson last weekend when I dropped a lot of points as my mat is wobbly as hell with the rear bag on it.

the second detail i shot with the bag and elbows on the grass and the mat way back and what a difference.  

So the question now is is there a mat that a bag can sit on? Do I just cut a hole in mine for the bag to go in, any suggestions?

I started with smallbore type mat but found it too thick and soft for grass, so I bought an AIM mat. This was OK, but too bulky, so I sold it and now use these:

I've found them to be brilliant. The butt bag stays exactly where it is, the damp doesn't come through and it's compact when rolled up.

Maidment - I just bought one.  These mats are made by a top F Class shooter.  See my write-up on http://www.targetshooter.co.uk/?p=3125
