Get yourself a 20MOA base. Have the trigger done on it. You want it as light as you are comfortable having it. For a field gun it is suggested to stay in the 1.5-2.5lbs range. Me personally, I'm nuts and like my triggers in the ounce range. But for having to wear gloves, it makes a difference. Get loading and find what the rifle likes, or find some factory match ammo or premium hunting ammo and see what it likes. Make sure you have a good bi-pod, or some sort of front rest. Make sure to use a sand bag or pad the bi-pod on a table when doing load test. Or if you choose to do so, shoot prone with your bi-pod resting in the grass. Make sure the barrel is completely free floated. If the rifle is new, look into doing a barrel break in. There a ton of different methods to do it.
For field shooting prone you'll want to pre-load your bi-pod a little by pushing into the rifle with your toes in the ground. Learn to keep a consistent cheek weld. You may have to make or purchase an adjustable cheek piece to keep your eyes aligned with the scope properly. Dry firing is a good way of learning a good trigger stroke. You want to be able to stroke the trigger dry so that you are not flinching or blinking at the snap of the firing pin. You'll see your point of aim jump if you are not consistent. If you are consistent, the cross hairs will stay in the center.
Don't hold your rifle with a death grip! Just relax. Depending on your comfort level with the rifle, allow your trigger hand thumb to rest to the side of the pistol grip so you don't torque the rifle when the gun recoils. The big thing is staying relaxed and not trying to over control the rifle. I prefer to shoot with both eyes open. It's difficult to learn if you shoot with one your whole life, but you won't fatigue as quickly. What scope are you using? I noticed in your last post that you said you have one on hand already.
P.S. It's an unwritten rule that you have to show the rifle porn when stating you have a new rifle!
