Bipod Techinque

Been taking my shots of my pack. Til now talking 500-600yds and one bull at 700yds plus. Normally I can lock up pretty solid, last fall due to the terrain my rest left quite abit to be desired. Never been a big fan of bipods, other than varmint hunting. Just read a post advising a inexperienced LRH like myself to research bipod technique. Would be interested in any info on this subject.

    Bearless, I'm pleased you asked the question. I've shot my .300 WM off a bipod a bit and groups weren't (too) bad, but I bounced all over making follow through difficult and I'd settle way off where I was aiming, making seeing hits impossible.

    I read the "Bugholes from Bipods" (I think it was) by Froggy, and there are a few tips - firm hold and pre-loading the legs, but that from what I saw about sums it up. Which is what Rimfire said.

    I'd also like any other tips.

    Thanks guys. Weather brakes, I'll put in some practice time. I basically use that hard hold method shooting off my pack. Although sometimes I'll do a reach around, depending on the terrain.
    Had a pretty good system hunting those sage covered slopes in WY. Went to CO last fall and hunted oak brush for the first time.
