I know this seems trivial, however on Battlerifles.com a year or so ago there was a real nice rest, mostly made of nylon w/a suede forearm holder. I bought one, but it was about the same price for the filler as the bag, so I put it off thinking I could do it cheaper. They (the vendor) are no longer there. I NEED to fill this bag with something "light", for a girl to use, NO SAND. It only has one gas nozel type male filler portal.ANY HINTS? TIA!

Use those plastic pellets, used to fill bean bags and dolls,etc. You could probably find them at Walmart in their craft section or a local craft store might have it. Don't remember the exact name for them through.

Rice, kitty litter or beans

Crushed corn cob.. the same stuff you use to clean brass with in a tumbler or vibrating cleaner.

Bingo! I have 5 GI sand abgs filled with crushed corn cobb. They're huge, but weigh about 2# each. It's a perfect thing for the inside of your bag.

Check you local gun shop. If they sell reloading stuff. Ask them for Corn Cob Media. Its for polishing brass. Or you can get it from www.Midwayusa.com or dillonprecision.com

Pet stores sell it for the bottom of bird cages. Check the local pet store.

Thanks for all the help guys, so far I got 1 bag of the plastic smaller than BB's(stuff you fill dolls with from WW) in, and next I'm going to the pet store, to get the sawdust like stuff. I think it will be a good combination. The bag is about 10"X 10" squared, its big. Hopefully it will "help" her keep her groups tighter! THANKS!

I've had good luck with split peas and kitty litter. I do like the idea of the tumbler media though. I may have to pick up a bag or two at the next funshow.
