Thanks for the replies guys. That makes sense, making offhand shooting a bit easier.

The rifle is very heavy already :):eek:

Funny -- I literally just wrote somewhere else that only a medium-weight barreled full-stock AR is balanced in 20"...
HBARs are front heavy and unbalanced. It is common to put these lead wedges into the buttstock compartment for service rifle competition. It does help keep you from "fighting" the gun a little, yes, especially as you are un-slung in offhand, standing there for a while, and are moving a tiny little bit out of position to check your target in the scope...

again, keep in mind that most people who put weight in the buttstock also put weight under the handguards and some even fill the bottoms of magazines with lead. i suppose some individual may want a rear weighted gun, though that seems like treating the symptom when the cure probably involves altering their exercise regimen. The basic goal of adding weight to the gun is inertia. it just wobbles less. the wind knocks it about less.
