Creedmore--$65 empty. Then you can buy the pellets.... I'm still mulling over our performance. I learned from racing motorcycles that there are a thousand ways to lose..... Good Shooting. ...

Yikes! I think I'll wait for the "Amazon" version.
My son and I don't need to mull much; need to practice more. One time out before CP isn't cutting it.

You don't need to use plastic pellets either, I found out about the Amazon bags, from a guy who put corn cob media in them. Not sure how they would stand up to the rain.

Corn cob media swells up big time when it gets wet and it doesn't shrink when it dries. Good Shooting. ...

Corn cob media is organic and likely will rot if it is wet for any period of time. It is also very light and that is problematic in a support bag. Weighted plastic pellets are superior and like most superior solutions do cost more. There are other less expensive solutions for practice rather than buying the exact same bags that are used in the match.

Making an observation:

To purchase the Creedmoor sniper bags and the 14 bags of plastic filler pellets, the cost is about $323.
I think I would spend that money for a hardback cordura shooting coat, currently priced at $320.
