    Hi all, trying the fx impact in 1.77 for bench rest shooting but am struggling to find a stable platform for the butt end of the rifle. Intend using the long fat bag for the front but as stated a bit lost for back end. All advice welcome. Thanks.

    I too have struggled to find a suitable support. Normally I use the blag Atlas bipod for the front and my hand for the rear support. I havent been able to find anything low enough either.

    have you managed to source a single shot loader for the impact for benchrest, know a few people who are struggling to source one?

    Spoke to our good friends in FX Sweden yesterday and they are trying to come up with something for me. Maybe this will become an option? Got to say i have been very impressed with the customer service to date and can only speak highly on the dealings i've had with them.:)

    I just direct feed into breech. It becomes second nature after a short while.

    I probably drop more than i get in! Must be big fingers. Hopefully they sort out a single shot loader.:)

    There is a guy on the other forum called Shoto1 who was making these - perhaps worth looking him up? He's a helpful guy and very keen on the whole FX Impact thing.
