Pope Double or Machine Rest

The Pope double or machine rest, with attachments is excellent for testing purposes. More information can be derived from its use in a few hours, than can be had by ordinary rest shooting by an ordinary shooter in as many weeks, as it has no human errors of holding and pulling. The results are those due to rifle, ammunition and weather. It is made in several styles.

In use, two stout posts are set deeply in the ground, the firmer the better; these are braced together, and a smooth, level plank fastened on the top; both posts are firmly braced in two directions, the stop is fastened on the top plank in proper position and the rear rest to the rear post so as to give approximately the correct elevation. Front rest and scope mountings are clamped to the barrel, the same loaded and slid gently to the stop; adjust the rest or telescope or perhaps both, so the gun points where you wish, cross hairs being between each pair of pasters; let the rifle rest naturally, hold the right hand about 6 inches behind the butt, touch the set trigger with the left hand and catch the rifle on recoil. If the gun has a heavy pull, pinch the trigger and guard with the thumb and forefinger so as not to disturb the rifle in the rest. In setting up, it is often convenient to set the rest, so the rifle will point on the target before the telescope is mounted, using the ordinary sights, then mount the scope and adjust it to the pasters, and shoot the group, then move the rest a fair amount, that depending on how close the gun will shoot, then bring the scope again to the pasters and shoot again. A telescope sight is not a necessity in double rest shooting, though it is a great convenience. With it you can shoot from a bench that is not firm, as the sight gives you a chance to correct the aim each time; for all that an absolutely firm bench is best, and if you shoot from double rest without a scope, it is an absolute necessity.
