This afternoon I set up some steel for the winter and did some practice. Had the 7-300 mags, 20BR and 6TCU out.

Can you tell me a little about the tripod setup you have pictured?

Looks interesting, and possibly more compact than a bog-pod with PSR top.

Freeze my tripod is a vanguard camera tripod, Manfrotto 055 ball head with a CLAW clamp on top. The claw is similar to the hog/pig saddle, it just has two tension screws rather than one.

I find it is considerably more stable and folds up smaller than BOG gear with the PSR top. Its Also heavier, my tripod is not carbon fiber that would reduce weight but it works well for me. I sold my BOG gear about a year and a half ago. My set up folds up to a little bigger in diameter than the bog tripod but shorter and you dont have to figure out where the top goes.

I had to test the Steel I set out for the winter and was hoping a second coyote would come by!

So true!

Sawcarver,

Thanks for the detailed response.

I'm going to make some assumptions on how it is used:

The "Claw" is clamped to the gun with the tension screws and remains there?

The Claw then attaches to the ball head with a quick mount shoe?

Then crude adjustments are made with the tripod legs, and fine adjustments made via the ball head?


Thanks,
Freeze

Great to see that pistol again Adam. One of the last times I saw it in person you were working the long range dogs with it from the top of the mountain.

Freeze you are correct, on your assumptions. The tripod legs will go almost flat for prone and all the way to standing if you want to.

Ernie, I had steel at 250, 320, 400, 475 and 600, bouncing between them. Too many conveyors in my way to go farther. The wind was from 5-15mph.

Jon that gun sure likes shooting a long ways away
