BreakdownAfter designing the Extreme Bipod, Rugged Ridge put their minds to work on stabilizing the back end of the rifle. This resulted in the creation of the Extreme Rear Support System or E.R.S.S. Without stabilizing the back end of your gun you cannot be accurate out at longer ranges. Before the E.R.S.S. hunters had to rely on wobbly elbows, heavy sandbags or rolled up coats to stabilize the rear of their rifle. The day has come that we can say goodbye to these sloppy techniques and rely on true American made mechanical advantage. The E.R.S.S offers superior stabilization and is so light and compact you can throw it in your pants pocket.
I purchased this for a trip to Alaska, after watching some of Brady's shooting tip videos. I purchased an ultralight rear bag as well, to compare the two for prone situations. In short, the bag will remain at home for shooting paper, and this RROG rear support will be going with me for all future hunts. This support worked flawlessly, and for more situations than a rear bag (the 4 positions allow more variation in shooting angles). As noted by another reviewer, it takes no time to get used to single handed operation. I even found it possible to gain a 5th position, where after the highest position, I could just squeeze while at the rear of my stock, to handle more extreme negative angles. A side benefit is that you can set up for likely shot positions/angles, and this rear support will hold your gun, even out in the open during 20+ mph winds. It comes with a case, but I saved more weight by just carrying it in the cargo pocket of my pants (Sitka Timberline).
Easy to adjust and improved my accuracy.
I was using this to get first round hits on target at 900+ yds. Simple, light weight, and takes up minimal space. With a little practice you get used to manipulating it with a single hand.

It is a good concept but it is unstable and keeps slipping the point that I have to hold it by hand to micro adjust height ( has only 2 heights) which defeats the purpose. I will still practice shooting with it until I find a consistent position for my gun.I am shooting a Christensen Traverse. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
