Caldwell Lead Sled Dft - The best recoil reducing rest in the shooting sports industry just got better! The original Lead Sled has taken the shooting industry by storm and revolutionized the way shooters approach shooting a firearm with heavy recoil. And now, we have improved the Lead Sled through our dual-frame design, making it even better. The Lead Sled DFT (Dual-Frame Technology) provides shooters with the industry’s best recoil reduction system and the versatility to fit virtually any shotgun or rifle, all built around a precision shooting platform. 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.


  • Dual frame alignment system adjusts 22” to fit rifles and shotguns of virtually any size.


  • Stay in optimal shooting position by making elevation corrections using the rear elevation collar.


  • Dual frame design disperses recoil energy even better than the original Lead Sled.


  • Extremely fine windage and elevation adjustments with finger tip control.
  • Multi-surface rear foot provides correct contact on all shooting surfaces.
  • Improved weight dispersion through our unique baffle and tray system.
  • Prevent stock shift between shots with the stock-stabilizer rear bag.
The Lead Sled DFT took the original ground-breaking Lead Sled™ recoil reduction and improved it. Dual Frame Technology (DFT) and specially constructed front rest bag and foam-lined rear cradle solidly stabilize a rifle or shotgun to eliminate nearly all vibration and felt recoil. It adjusts 22" forward and back to fit most firearms. Rear elevation knob adjusts 2" to make target centering an easy one-handed operation. Baffled tray secures up to 100 lbs. of weight (four 25-lb. bags of lead shot) to tame the heaviest magnums. Nonskid rubber feet.

Caldwell Lead Sled Dft Reviews:


Excellent Product and Great Service

I bought the Lead Sled DFT last fall to sight in my shotgun with a new scope for the NJ deer season. I shoot magnum slugs and magnum buckshot so sighting in a new scope historically was a painful process that had me flinching and sore by the time I was done. The Lead Sled made that a quick, painless, and very enjoyable process. Assembly was a snap. Setup and use are simple. And the product really works exactly as designed. Build quality is excellent. Nothing but great things to say about this product. I intend to use it to break in and sight in the scope on my new .308 target rifle. But the thing that really impressed me is the customer service I got from Caldwell. The first time I used the sled, I managed to lose one of the front rubber feet that go on the two front legs to keep the sled from sliding around on the bench. The feet weren't loose or prone to fall off but I think I inadvertently pried it off when strapping the Lead Sled to my hand cart to transport it from my vehicle to the range. I didn't notice the foot had come off until I was home (about 30 miles from the range). I called Caldwell customer support to see if I could buy a replacement and they said "don't worry about it, we'll send you one." They mailed one right out and I am back in business. Great product and great company to deal with.

Excellent Purchase

Have always used the lower end shooters rest. Bought this Caldwell Lead Sled DFT. Old saying: You get what you pay for. This rest is of high quality. Sighted in two 50 Cal. ML's, 270, and a 17 cal. Maximum of 3 shots and dead on. Extremely happy and would purchase again. Those who chase your shots when sighting in. This rest will eliminate this and save you money in ammo as well.

Caldwell sled.. nice

First- ther is NO lead in this ssled.. Just heavy steel.
It has the adjustments needed for easy use. I use it mostly for Gunsmithing - scope install and sighting in.
I does clear a AR and other magazine fed guns and has trays for aditional weights. Robust design .
When on sale it is reasonable and well worth the price.
