I shoot a .308 with no brake and there are times I can spot my own trace.
square up, load the bipod, pull the trigger.
If the gun hops up or to the side your doing it wrong
I shoot off my rifle bag, it folds out.. I made a para cord do thingy, that i can hook on my bipod legs so I can load the bipod even on concrete. Works good, Let me know if you want more info
