The Caldwell Original Lead Sled revolutionized the shooting rest market by nearly eliminating felt recoil from even the heaviest magnum rifles. The Lead Sled Plus is the next-generation of Lead Sled. Like the Original, the Plus reduces recoil by up to 95% while securely holding your gun on target.
Key improvements include a newly-designed precision elevation shaft that eliminates wobble and play in front elevation keeping you perfectly on target and a new Universal Weight Tray. The unique new tray adjusts to accommodate a variety of weight types, including 25 pound bar bell weights, sand or lead shot bags.
These improvements along with all the other great features are sure to continue the legacy of The Lead Sled as the world's finest recoil reducing rest.

Will the Lead Sled Damage my stock or my scope?
No. With up to 100 pounds of weight the rest, it will in no way damage a modern gun or scope. The rest basically takes the place of your shoulder and absorbs and transfers the recoil through the frame.
If your rifle has a metal butt plate it is a good idea to add some foam or a cloth rag between the rear cradle and the butt of the gun. This will prvent the metal butt plate from damaging the rear cradle slip cover.
What should I use for weight?
Adding any weight to the tray reduces recoil. Our extensive testing has shown lead shot to perform better than sand and better than solid metal weight. However, the Lead Sled Plus is design to accomodate plate weights or weight bags. We recommend between 25 and 50 pounds of lead shot, that will reduce recoil to the point it is not noticeable on most rifles. For extreme magnums up to 100 pounds can be used.
Check out the weight bags designed to hold lead shot, sand or other material. The standard size bags hold 25 pounds of lead shot or about 12 pounds of sand. The lagre bag holds approx 20 pounds of sand. They work great to transport your weight to the range.
