Re: Shooting rest to practical hunting situation

savage accustock accutrigger DNZ tac one peice rings and zeiss conquest. all bolts are tightened to specs and all shooting has been from prone. only difference has been my left hand holding on stock on the rest like actual hunting say like off a pack, with a bipod it was under the butt to elevate and sturdy.

Re: Shooting rest to practical hunting situation

sounds exactly like what I just went threw with a small twist. in taking my new load from bench to a tripod (I have to shoot over tall grass in flatlands) my patterns moved a few inches to the right. took me a long time to figure out what the heck was wrong, but if finally became clear that I was simply setting up to the gun differently. slightly different position on my shoulder and slightly differnet hand position and grip strenght moved the pattern.

the gun and the load were fine....
