Re: Bullet shot high when resting on hood of car...
I have found that when sighting in off a rest, then shooting off a bipod, that yes sometimes the rifle has a different POI. I experienced this last week with my 338 EDGE shooting a rock at 830 yards. With just the bipod and using no rear bag, I was hitting the rock just fine. My dad was up next to shoot but he wanted to use the rear bag, well he was hitting about a 1' high everytime. I thought it was just him, but then I shot with the rear bag as well and my bullets were landing a foot high as well.
Were you shooting at any kind of an uphill/downhill angle?? That has quite a bit to do with it when your shooting past 500-600 yards.
