Birchwood Casey Goes From Targets to Rests with the “Nest Rest”

There are few things better than splatter targets at the range. While high-magnification spotting scopes can help with shot identification at shorter ranges, trying to group a rifle at extended range can be a bit of a chore unless there is some help. Yes, modern electronic cameras and wi-fi equipped tables are quickly becoming the norm – its an expensive norm. The splatter targets are thus the perfect low-cost solution.

Thus, I was a bit surprised to see Birchwood Casey perhaps best known for their bird-poop looking splatter targets thus getting into the range rest market. Fortunately for us shooters, they have opted to stay in the “great solution – great price” segment of the market with their latest new offering the “Nest Rest.”

Basically, The Nest Rests are stackable soft and durable rubber material that can be a field expedient, yet perfectly usable rifle rest. By using their shape to cradle the rifle, it’s easily to get a nice firm shooting position. To adjust the angle of the weapon, simply move either rest backward or forwards, depending on the situation.

As a bonus, the two rests are completely stackable inside one another making for a compact and lightweight solution versus the norm of heavy sandbags. The largest is only 6.6″ x 6″ x 5″ D.

Retail pricing is set at $24.99

    The issue is to get both adjustable for their height

      In what situation would you need that kind of adjustment? You can already adjust the angle of the weapon by moving one of the rests forward or backward, and you initially buy whatever size rest is best for you. And if you somehow screw up the second part, it’s insanely easy to just rest them on top of something else.

    I’m glad to see “Made In USA” imprinted on these items.

    I’ve got just about the identical thing already from another manufacturer.


    BC has a great warranty policy on their products. They’ve replaced just about every target I’ve bought from them due to .22lr failure of bolts and their cheap steels.

    Still love them, and have replaced them with higher end stuff that’ll accept mylticalibers.
