thanks guys,i only ask because i want the gun to SHOOT and know whats its gonna do before i hunt with it. If its all over the paper or within a coffee can sized group,i think thats sloppy shootin and preperation. I don't like blaming the rifle after I have tested it thourghly and prepped it for a hunt.
I like to use a bag off the front(backpack) and some bag support in the back. I got my groups down to under 1" at 100yrds with 140gr Sierra Gamekings. I try to use a solid support being bone and have the butt of the rifle stock held firm agains my shoulder solid.
I will admit I got tighter groups with more tigger time but I would rather muzzle brake
