That's an easy fix...

Get off the bench.

Re: Bags good enough?

I don't use a bench at all. Even my load work up is done while laying on the ground with a bipod, or more recently this "rest" that I got from a friend who posts on here. It's damn nice and weighs less than a bipod and I usually carry it in my pack. It has no problem with addressing varying heights or fitting in a pack.

Now that I think about it, the NF with my field stuff is free. The range cost money. What was I thinking. Just figured the range with bags, was better for load testing than on the ground. You guys will have to forgive me. Spent the last 15 years shooting a bow.

Another impressive innovation!!!

That model gives me some ideas. As a rest it is not attached to the rifle and does not count as rifle weight which an important consideration in Idaho with its 16# max weight limit with all attachments.

I likw that rest! Looks like it would be fast & sturdy & work well if you have a proper rear bag.
