Define affordable? Lead sled or a CTK P3.... Couple of bag rest from walmart, backpack stuffed with cloths and a rolled up jacket on top...

Jeff, if you LOCK it down to zero it, it won't be sighted in for you, close, but not right on.

Gun barrels and actions, especially ARs, are dynamic and when you change the harmonics, you change the POI. Perfect repeatability gives the best accuracy.
Good Shooting, MarkCO
