I use low density injection molding plastic pellets that are leftover or scrap from our molding machine at work. LDPE, TPX, ABS are all good choices. Find a buddy that works in a molding shop and you can probably get them for free.

I have one finished and I used corncob tumbling media. It's a little shorter than I anticipated but that just gives me reason to build another. Which is under way.

l used to shoot Benchrest Rifle in Factory Varmint.. Next to your

gun and ammo your shooting bags were the most lmportant ltem

More stable the better.. lt was illegal to fill your bags with

steel or lead shot. Sand tends to Clump or dimple with those

bumps or valleys being difficult to adjust... Being an industrial

painter l was familiar with as a blast media. Not very expensive

and readily available l had access to mountains of it.. A unsafe

byproduct of sand is silica dust. There is also a substitute for

sand that has NO DUST. lts more expensivebut without the hazards

sand... GLASS BEADS-- Dense like sand without the clumps, bumps,

and dust

I use Air Soft Pellets. Plastic BB's They work well, and are light weight. My front bag on my antique Wichita rest still has sand fill. Sand is good for the Range, Airsoft for packing around.

Thanks Ernie and everyone for your input.

Sometimes you get bogged down in the obvious. Appreciate all of the advice.
