  • Patent number: 11118884
    Abstract: A dispenser for dispensing powder for firearm ammunition and associated methods. The dispenser can include a hopper, a conveyor, a scale, a dispenser controller, and a tangible storage medium storing instructions executable by the dispenser controller. The dispenser controller can execute a powder calibration sequence and/or a dispensing sequence. In the powder calibration sequence and/or the dispensing sequence, the dispenser controller desirably learns the dispense rate of the powder and uses the dispense rate to optimize dispensing of the powder and increase precision in dispensing a target mass of powder. The conveyor can comprise a conveyor tube having a conveyor tube axis oriented to extend at an upward angle with respect to horizontal.

  • Patent number: 11009306
    Abstract: A shooting rest and associated methods. The shooting rest includes a forward support and a rear support both supported by a frame. The forward support is configured to clamp a forward portion of the firearm and permit rotation of the firearm with respect to the frame about a pitch axis to adjust a vertical aim of the firearm and about a yaw axis to adjust a horizontal aim of the firearm. The rear support includes a platform positioned to support a bottom of a trigger hand grip portion of the firearm. The platform is adjustable in elevation to adjust the vertical aim of the firearm.

  • Publication number: 20210041202
    Abstract: A shooting rest, components thereof, and associated methods. The shooting rest includes a frame, a forward firearm support connected to the frame, and a rear firearm support connected to the frame. The rear firearm support includes a stop configured to limit rearward movement of the firearm with respect to the frame when the firearm is fired. A liquid tank is supported by the frame and is configured to hold liquid to increase the effective mass of the shooting rest to reduce recoil felt by a shooter when the firearm is fired.
