Whether you are trying to shoot the very tightest possible groups with your rifle or patterning your favorite shotgun, the Lead Sled DFT provides an optimal platform for shooting without nasty recoil.

Will the Lead Sled DFT really reduce recoil?
Absolutely! The Lead Sled DFT was engineered specifically to eliminate recoil. The effectiveness of the design was proven through extensive testing. Simply watch the video and see the Lead Sled tame the recoil of a .416 Magnum to point it can't even break a egg!
What is the difference between the original Lead Sled and the Lead Sled DFT?
DFT stands for Dual Frame Technology and that design is what allows for some of the advanced features of the DFT. The front support cradle can be adjusted 22" forward to rear, allowing the rest to accomodate very long guns all the way down to handguns. The Dual Frame also allows Semi auto rifles like AR-15's to be used with detachable magazines. A 30 round AR mag will fit right between the two frame tubes. Other advancements include the rear elevation adjustment and front cradle windage adjustment.
Will the Caldwell Lead Sled DFT Damage my stock or my scope?
No. With up to 100 pounds of weight the rest will in no way damage a modern gun or scope. The rest basically takes the place of your shoulder and absorbs and transfers the recoil through the frame.
What should I use for weight?
Adding any weight to the tray reduces recoil. Our extensive testing has shown lead shot to perform better than sand and better than solid metal weight. We recommend between 25 and 50 pounds of lead shot that will reduce recoil to the point it is not noticeable on most rifles. For extreme magnums up to 100 pounds can be used.
