Rear sand sock/squeeze bag?

Looking for a little input from our resident long-rifle community here. I just started shooting with our snipers (LE) and am wondering if you guys had any recommendations for a rear sand bag/ sock/ squeeze bag. I went to training the other day and ended up just throwing a bottle of airsoft BB's (leftover from a Halloween costume) into a hiking sock and used that for the day. I'm not sure how durable that will be though in the long run, or if l'll have enough elevation if I extend the bipod. Are there any decent commercial options, or should I just add more BB's to the sock, as needed?

I read the old thread in making your own sand sock, but it was a few years ago, so I figured I'd ask again and see if anything new has come out recently that would surpass the sock-option.
