    Not a bench but we made a nice rest. If I can find the blueprints I might send you a copy for a price.

      Don't worry about the bench, any secure table will do. Get some good rests front and rear for your rifle. You want a secure hold to sight in your loads. After that just shoot with or without rests.

        my dad and I went out our scrap iron pile, picked out a metal table that was thrown in there a while back. It works great.

          A friend made one that basically looks like 1/4 of a standard size picnic table. He's fine with it but I like a separate seat, with a corner of the bench cutout so that about a foot of the surface is in front of me and a couple of feet beside me when I sit.

          Rather than get a fixed dimension design you might want to check out a couple of rifle ranges. Find something you like then measure it. Mix and match but make it sturdy. It'll be customized to your tastes.

                Nope and wrong on the 6.5 Creedmoor. The Creed kills them just as dead as the .30-06, 25-06, and 270 but with much less recoil. I've used both the .30-06...

                Between Winchester and Browning and others, 40 rifles are chambered for the 6.8 Western. Question is, will the 6.8 surpass the 6.5 CM in popularity...
