You shoot pretty fast and the rifle surely has some recoil, so try scratching the bipod legs in before you shoot. The other thing is remove any shooting mat from under the bipod or rear bag. Then change out your rear bag for something more solid. Your biggest problem is vertical and I am sure there are some thermals too. But I have a feeling the rear of the rifle is dropping under recoil.
Not trying to be critical, just sharing what I have done myself and what helped. At these distances it does not take much.
Thanks for your input Jeff it is appreciated
The bipod has spikes, the feet don't move but being a Harris it does hinge back at the rifle.
I will remove the mat from under the bag, good idea thanks
Feild positions are usually always a compromise, this one wasn't too bad apart from the rock by my right elbow
, it is gone now.
Shooting up hill is never ideal, shooting level is much better.
You are right it takes incredibly small amounts of "inconsistencies" to have a big effect at that range.
I do prefer to shoot at smaller targets so that the size of the groups/dispersion is quite noticable.
Hopefully when it is a little drier all the strikes will be clearly visable.
All this is a massive learning curve.
I was very surprised when the first shots were that high, in the past I needed to add 6moa at 2500 & 9moa at 3000yards
This time was the most consistent shooting past 2050 I have done.
Quite a difference between 2050 & 2910 yards though
