Does anyone have any opinions on GREENLAW " B " STYLE REST?

The website is: http://drgreenlawmac.../_b__style_rest

The price is very reasonable for this style of benchrest. The only question I would have is with the windage top having only 3/4" of travel. Is that enough travel for the top?

3/4" is probably 10 times more than enough, I only use maybe a total of 1/8"-1/4" total that is from the far right hand to the left hand side of the target at 50yds 1 turn of the wheel will take you from the center of the target all the way to one side or the other with 15-20 turns left. I know my friend that has an F Class Rest (600yds) and it has very minute adjustments so I guess it is a geometry thing, the need for more adjustment would be if your shooting closer than 50yds. All I know for a fact is I have to make allot more adjustment at 25yds vs. 50yds so I think your well within the tolerances for 50yd, you got me looking at them now they’re allot better than the $1200 Fulgham I want and looks almost identical just no belt system which I like better than the Fulgham oh and the 75% cheaper for the same thing. Let us know if you get one I am interested in this one too, keep it in the 10..."T"

I did a few calculation on the windage adjustment.

Assume that the front rest is 20" from the rear bag with the rear bag being the pivot point and a 3/4" windage adjustment on the front benchrest.
A 3/4' windage adjustment on the rest would correlate to 36" windage adjustment at 25 yards, 67" at 50 yards and 135" at 100 yards. Of course if the distance from the front rest to the rear bag differs so will the results of these calculation. If the distance is less tan 20", the correlated value would be more. and if the distance was more than 20" say 25", the correlated value be 54" at 50 yards and 108" at 100 yards which is less. But regardless, a 3/4" windage adjustment would be more than enough for the UBSR target that is 14" wide.


Since I am in looking for a good benchrest and have been on the waiting list for a Cowan rest, I would like to hear the opinions from a few owners of this benchrest. Maybe someone will post some.

Can't stand bad spelling. Have to correct it.

I have a Fudd top on a Caldwell base and that's about how much adjustment it has, maybe even slightly less. It's plenty of adjustment.

I did not buy it.

I have been looking at both the GreenLaw and the Joe Cowan benchrest and have not decided yet.
