Caldwell Rock front rest on sale at Cabelas

Just ran across this sale, the Caldwell Rock BR 1000 is on sale at Cabelas for $89. Normally this lists for $199 and tends to sell online for $160-170, so this is a good deal. Here's the info:

Caldwell® Rock BR™ 1000 Shooting Rest
  • Magnum size for heavy rifles and extreme-distance shooting
  • Massive, 24-lb. frame supported by a wide 18" footprint
  • Precision, ball-bearing elevation system
  • Includes two forend bags
Unleash the full potential of your rifle and ammunition. The the magnum-sized BR 1000 is extra wide and heavy, perfect for taming hard-hitting long-range rifles. With features like a fine-adjustment ball-bearing elevation system, windage-adjustable cradle and customizable bag tensioning, it's built to meet the high expectations of competitive bench-rest shooters. The two-stage elevation adjustment reaches up to 11-1/2". It includes a 3" three-lobe bag and a 5" three-lobe bag. Stable, recoil-soaking 18" cast-iron footprint. Long-life stainless steel components. Accepts any of the Caldwell Deluxe front rest bags.
Weight: 24 lbs.
This would probably make a pretty decent front rest for muzzleloaders, combined with a rear bag would be a nice set up. There are better rests out there, but they cost $500-700 and up. I think this particular rest has been discontinued by Caldwell, so now's the time to get it.
