The MDT Sporting Goods Peanut shooting bag lineup now has a significantly lighter fill option that brings the weight of the bag down to one pound, six ounces.

By incorporating spex lite fill, the Peanut shooting bag’s weight is reduced 6.5x from the original glass fill bag, making this new option easy to carry and adjust.

About its new spex lite fill option for the Peanut shooting bag, MDT said it “can be less cumbersome and easy to manipulate while changing positions on a competition stage with no compromises to durability.”


Made with 10.10-ounce waxed army duck canvas, the Peanut shooting bag withstands harsh conditions and retains minimal moisture. It also features a zipper opening for an adjustable fill level, allowing you to fine-tune the balance and feel of the bag according to your preference.

In addition, the MDT Peanut shooting bag is designed to fit snugly in Precision Rifle Series props and barricade openings, providing reliable front and rear support for precise shooting.

The Peanut shooting bag’s dimensions are 10 x 3.5 x 5 inches.

More about the Peanut shooting bag from MDT: “Named after Peanuts, the versatile and accomplished Quarter Horse, this shooting bag is a tribute to the adaptability and relentless spirit that drove a champion from racetrack to rodeo hall of fame.”

MSRP for the new MDT Peanut shooting bag with spex lite fill is $109.95, which is $20 more than the crushed glass fill bag. Go to
