Hello, I am French, I practice the benchrest for 7 years and I use Google translation for you speak. American equipment even at home in France is very used in the benchrest because it is true that know the best but in France it is very expensive compared to the price of your home. If God wants in September for the holidays I will go down from Montreal to Manhattan by car through Boston and Bridgeport. can you please send me armory addresses in this area, specializing in reloading material for particular benchrest which distributes brands like Kelbly or Sinclair.
Thank you so much.

The only place like you are requesting I know of is Bruno's in Phoenix, AZ and even then I don't know if he would have everything you are looking for. There was a time when Harts had a good supply of Benchrest things but the last time I was there it was a shambles of what it use to be. Most people order their equipment, etc mail order I believe.

You might have luck with Bob White at the Shooter's corner in New Jersey. I lived in Connecticut for the better part of my life and there are few places to purchase benchrest equipment to which you can drive. I did much of my purchasing on the internet and through my gunsmith, Sid Goodling, who built my first rifle (he is located in Pennsylvania).
If you do a search for "Shooters Corner" all his information will show up.
Good luck and hope you enjoy your time in the States!

I buy much of my Bench Rest loading supplies and equipment from Bob White at the Shooter's Corner. It is 47 miles from my apartment in Manhattan. Easy drive. Just give him a call in advance and make sure he is going to be there. Sometimes he is away at a shoot, or has other commitments. There are other places that carry some reloading supplies, but very few close by and very few that cater to bench rest shooters like Bob does. Let me know when you are in Manhattan, maybe we can do some shooting.
