Happy with the ELR, thinking I should have got the strap, but still happy with it. Definitely recommend.

I purchased my 2nd ZC4x20 a couple of weeks ago and they are an outstanding scope.Just started to save for another one and if they send a second stimulus check out I will have another one.

Outstanding! My 3D ELR is scheduled for delivery Friday morning, and I'm leaving for my weekend class Friday afternoon... perfect timing!
Thanks for getting it out so fast.

Yessir we appreciate it. Y’all flooded us on this last one and we burned through a lot of material. With shipping being hit or miss I can’t count on materials getting in as fast as they used to. Thanks for the patience. And if anyone else is waiting we expect to have pretty much everything out by wed/thurs depending on what time the post man shows up with the QDs.

For prone or bench shooting I have a homemade bag that was made to be nearly identical to the 3d ELR.

In matches I use a Wiebad mini fortune cookie for literally everything. I'm starting to like it more and more for a rear bag even on the bench.

Can’t wait, hope to be blasting at the range next week!

I was convinced by this thread to order a ELR bag and got it today, now I have questions.

I've got 10 years experience using a Defensive Edge bag, that's my only experience. I got the ELR bag and notice its pretty darn full. With the DE bag it was probably 3/4 full, and it was about the size of a large soup can. When I needed more elevation I simply squeezed the bag a bit and held and I'd be on target.

With the new ELR bag I don't seem to be getting much elevation with a squeeze. Is this because it's new and needs worked in a bit? Am I using it wrong?

I'm not saying it's the bags fault, there wouldn't be so much positive about it if there was an issue, but I need a little education on how to properly use it.

Part of the beauty of this fill is that it doesn't move too easily. Settle your stock into it and make subtle adjustments with a squeeze.

What we want to see is you aiming the rifle with your body rather than with the bag. So you are set up and the rifle is connected to you and pointing at the target. Then the bag is added and “slight” cheek pressure locks it in. So you aren’t using the bag to squeeze and aim you are aiming and then adding the bag. This is connecting the rifle to the ground through you rather than connecting the rifle to the ground through the bag, if that makes sense. If you need to raise the stock use your body position to do that and then use the bag to hold it still once you are on target.

What I do is first compress the stock into the bag with it on target, get in position and transfer 95% of the stock to my shoulder, make micro-adjustments of my body until I’m on target with a straight pull into my shoulder, then glue it in place with the bag. So the bag is there to make the reticle be still while 95% of my aim is coming from me.

A few guys have requested less fill which we can do for you no prob. We don’t want you to have to change the way you shoot to accommodate the bag. But you may want to give the above a shot first. There is a trade off on workability/adjustability when you make a bag more solid but that won’t matter if you are using your body to aim, assuming the bag is sized correctly for your set up. Either way send us an email and we’ll get you fixed up however you need! Sales@precisionundergroundriflegear.com

I'm going to give it a try before anything. I just wanted to make sure my range session was productive using the right technique. Your explanation is definitely different than how I shoot now. I currently get close with the body and bipod and then squeeze to get final adjustments on target.

For rough adjustments with the PU bags I just tilt the bag a bit.
They’re so stable it doesn’t hurt anything at all even at ELR distances.

And that works As long as you aren’t shooting something with recoil. I want the rifle to be an extension of me. I’m pulling straight into a relaxed shoulder and wherever the reticle is, that’s where I’m aiming. I’ll adjust my body until that straight pull into the shoulder has me on target. That is natural point of aim. I think a lot of guys throw that one out the window and are shooting more off of a “rest” made of a bipod and a bag. That’s fine and our bags work better than most for that but as soon as you have any recoil you are going to have problems staying on target. If the rifle is an extension of you you can control any recoil that is put in front of you.

I’ve been trying to get a video together explaining the difference in aiming with your body and aiming with the bag. Both work but aiming with the bag makes it harder to stay on target and nearly impossible to stay on target with any significant recoil. Give it a shot and we are happy to adjust you however you need!

Here's a plug for PU's suppressor cover. I got one for my QB can and it is really well made. It's easy to put on and take off. The cord keeps it in place during recoil and it cuts down on the mirage coming off of the can.

I will be ordering a couple more.

Thanks for making a great product.

We appreciate it. We spent a lot of time getting it right. People don’t realize how much easier it is with it being a sleeve rather than a wrap. You slide it on and drop the cord behind it and it’s done. I can put it on and take it off in 20 seconds. It’s a lot more labor to build it that way but we want it to be better than what’s out there.
