That rest is good to test ammo for accuracy. Here's one used by some national champions and record setters.....

Never used to get sight zeros by any of them.

Several people shooting the same rifle and ammo will not have the same sight settings to zero at a given range. I've observed this a few times with 4 people shooting the same stuff in a team match. This phenomenon is often thought to be caused because we all look through the sights differently; in reality, another myth in the shooting sports that's easily proven false.
