Accushot monopod or rear bag ?

Just looking at getting a rear rest that I will use in the field with my 338 and use for practice with bipod at targets.

The monopod I'm looking at is the bt 04 with quick knob and tac cap. Apparently they are really solid, but I would imagine that without a bipod up front they would wobble around. Sometimes I cant use a bipod because of the angle and bag the front instead.

Just interested to get some in the field feedback ?

Cheers guys.

i tried one mostly on a bench for a time and junked it, slow to adjust, never the right surface to get lined up with because its a hard and set dimension at the rear even though they are adjustable. a bag is better in my opinion.

Hi mate

I have that same monopod. I bought it last year for my 700p and in all honesty I didn't like it. I found it just wasn't as stable as a rear bag. Each to there own, some like it some don't. If your after one let me know as mine is just sitting around doing nothing.

same here....limited use....not gonna say you cant shoot long range with it.....just that a bag is better.
I admit that I know just enough to be dangerous.....but dangerous at ever extending distances.

Use the bag and/or Harris Bipod. All this monopod and shooting sticks stuff is just more usueless junk to carry around.

I like it at the range, to a point...more stable than a rear bag. But...it isn't as easy to adjust. In the field, either a bag or my left hand under the butt of the rifle...
