Who made a hydraulic shock absorbing "rifle sled" for big bore load development?

Greetings; I've been reading 'bout your 'lead sleds', which require hauling heavy masses [weight divided by gravity] around, as if we don't carry enough stuff for an afternoon at the range. Having engineering tendencies, I'm wondering if y'all tried a lighter weight hydraulic shock absorber in the design. Seems that would permit shock absorbing travel adjustments, employing a spring return of the stock. The forestock or barrel would lie in a traditional laterally confined "V" jig support.

If this has been tried & failed, then I'm glad I asked & off I go to the quarry for bags of mass. If you don't kill my idear, then me and my Visio software get acquainted again, and I rehash some Sophomore physics & Kinematics. Let your feelings fly, I can take it.

I are no engineer, but for this to function, wouldn't the base first have to be anchored to a bench to prevent the whole setup from jumping around on recoil?
