In MAC's latest video about the X95, he has complains about bench shooting the rifle. I've noticed other complaints about bench shooting a bullpup. Personally, I've had my issues. Shot through the top of my bag on a couple of occasions.

Anyone have advice or guidance they'd like to share? I can see how a rifle with a shorter barrel (ie, something in the 16 inch realm as opposed to 20+) would present some issues, especially if you're used to bench shooting a non-bullpup rifle.

The Tavor podium and a 10 or 20 round mag makes bench shooting super easy. It's the 30 round mags that make things difficult.

I don't have an issue shooting of the bench at all. A sand bag under the butt helps too.

Now that is something I've seen but never tried. Usually I just try and tuck my other arm underneath it.

I have a Caldwell lead sled that adjusts the spacing between rests. It works good for bullpups but sits up high off the bench so it makes it awkward to use.

10-20 mag and a sock-bag. What is the sock bag? Grab a cotton tube sock and dump one of those $15 cans of BBs from Walmart into it. Tie once, and then fold over. You now have a perfectly solid shooting plateform on which to either rest the handguard or add two more socks to rest the gun on. Cheap, solid, compact, works - without the sand. Not my idea, props to AK47 Operators Union youtube how to.

I'd go with the Tavor as the winner

Two things would make benching a Tavor awesome - aluminum replacement legs for the TAR podium, and for some manufacturer (Manticore maybe?) to make a monopod friendly (either short railed or stud mount) replacement buttpad/butt assembly.
