Bench Rest Suggestions?

I'm looking to buy a bench rest to use with my Savage Axis .308 and Century Arms AK 47. I'd like one under $100 that can utilize a weight bag. The main use will be for zeroing the rifles for different ranges. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Sorry wrong forum, mods please move.

I have a portable I got from cabelas on sale for 100 bucks, works well with or without bags and folds up easily for transport

I use a Caldwell Rock front rest. I poured lead into the legs to add stability. Works fine-business with a bunny bag in the back.

I decided on the Caldwell Lead Sled Solo.

The Lead Sled solo arrived today and I was pleasantly surprised. It's better constructed than I thought it would be, and it's fairly heavy on it's own. Tomorrow I'll take it to the range and try it out.
