I have alarge rear end. Let's just be real about it. So as I consider showing up to a match with what I have used in the past - boating floation cushions - it occurs to me that a proper bum bag filled with buck wheat shells is in order.... atleast thatis what I get the imperssion I should be using.

What reccomendations do you have and where etc?

Thank you for your help.

~GOD BLESS~

Hey Jeff, which grade (size) on the granulated cork, and much much of it?

July 12 2017, 6:52 PM 

I also use a standard-size bag from "Un Poco de Oxido".
Thanks,
HookEm

Cork...

I've used the 1mm-2mm and the 6-14mm. Of course you use less of the larger nuggets to fill a bag. Its a personal preference thing. The smaller nuggets will result in a heavier bag and I feel its denser to sit on but may not be as easy to settle into as the larger nuggets. I now prefer the larger nuggets.

The minimum order of either of these is 2kg which is 4.4lbs and is enough to fill 2 bags I believe if not slightly more. My memory is failing me. Maybe ask them for a sample of each before you order.

I hope this helps.

Jeff P

John, do you remember the bag I used shooting with you at the Tenn 120?

July 11 2017, 3:45 PM 

It's from Airguns of Arizona. It is a Daystate bag. All cordura. I use the buckwheat hulls that I bought at Amazon.com....

The bag retails around $60 if they still carry them. Very well built quality as the name indicates. Their are probley less expensive ones out there. Try eBay...

I use the same bag with buckwheat hulls. Awesome.

July 11 2017, 8:14 PM 

Anyone that sits on it usually buys one like it.

Airgunwerks (in the U.S.) sells bum bags

July 11 2017, 3:55 PM 

Google it with THAT spelling. The spelling seems foreign, but the company is owned by a Brit-American, residing in Tennessee. wink.gif

I prefer buckwheat hulls. Heavier than most other fillers, but superior for finding/fine-tuning comfortable, STABLE shooting positions. Again, Google can locate sources.

Sounds weird but...

Yoga Cushion w Buckwheat fill...
the buckwheat won't squish over time and the cost is less than what true "bum bags" cost -- $33 from Amazon.
Have had this one for about 5 years now and have had 0 problems and no compression.
Some people like the squishy, though, as it gives them a more stable seat. just something to think about.

I have one of those.

Awesome cushion.. but you'll need to take a lot of the hulls out to make it work better for FT...

Ive removed about 1/2 in the bag.... now its pliable and conforms to the bum well

I have this

July 15 2017, 10:10 PM 

It works well, but, fair warning, I am skinnyfat and have a small bum. It works well for me.

I thought I needed to remove some of the filling (there's an inner zippered bag inside the cover, as well as a "scrim" container within that). But, a few weeks/months of sitting on it have broken down the filling a bit to where I don't feel any need to remove anything.

There are some that are a little larger for those broader in the beam. https://www.amazon.com/Zafu-Crescent-Meditation-Buckwheat-Certified/dp/B00QUBJ1ZI/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1500170790&sr=8-14&keywords=yoga+cushion

We have a number of folks in the DFW area shooting hunter off a bag.

Dont' forget RAW

July 11 2017, 8:51 PM 

Their bag is large, maybe even considered extra large. It forms around my bottom well. As for fill I use what it came with(mostly compressed now) and random sized cut up pieces of the shipping rings your pellets come in from PA. I can wiggle my way into a comfortable position and when I'm done the filling returns to form. I got the Idea from Leo G.

I also like the granulated cork. It's lighter and doesn't breakdown. I only fill

July 11 2017, 8:53 PM 

it to about 60 to 75% of it's capacity. I want to be able to use the edge of it only with about an inch or two of fill, when I want my butt lowered and/or my knee higher for uphill shots.

I've used that same cork supplier and the recylced stuff is just fine at $3.44 or whatever per pound. I bought some about 5 years ago and have worn out the bags, and just moved the cork into a new bag.. it's still holding up like new.

Creedmore Sports also sells them.

I'm currently using the one that AoA sells filled with the granulated cork that Jeff mentioned earlier. I've thought about trying the buckwheat hulls after using Paul's bumbag in the pistol match at the Southern Open-thanks Paul! Just haven't ordered it yet 😬

Most excellent! Thank you all for the responses and options...

July 12 2017, 9:42 AM 

I have limited access to the network so responses from me come at later than I would like to times...

That being said I am very excited to see and read the great information regarding the options for a BUM bag etc..

My birthday is coming up - 48 years - so I will give the links to my wife and request one as a bday gift!

I am really excited to get out and shoot with those of you who are in the area. We should know by the end of this week about my travel schedule for work through the end of October. Looks like some matches I will be able to attend. Very exciting.

Let it be said that I do not yet know how to click up down etc. I understand the concept, however, I do not practice it. My scope should be able to handle it - just don't know if my brain can happy.gif

So I most likely will use hold over/under/off for windage and elevation adjustments until I get a better feel of the flow of a match. I do like scoring, however, I don't expect to win. I might even wear my team t-shirt!

~GOD BLESS~
