Okay I will try this as well . Whatever it takes ! Thanks

Re: Shooting results !!!!!! (Today) Pics added!!

bunny ear bag. I was refering to the rear bag rest that is next to your windshield. I
prefer mine as hard as I can get it. I've noticed that a soft bag can contribute to vertical stinging. the reason i pay attention to wear my cross hairs settle after the shot is because if I set up my body position so that the cross hairs are close to point of aim my groups are much better.when shooting from a bipod, I want my cross hairs above the target and very little left or right after the shot.

BigBuck, I wanted to add your shooting is not that bad. But it will get much better with proper rifle control and with better conditions.

The importance of being Solid

You actually shot sub MOA at 800 yds which is not bad at all. I have also learned a lot from that link that he posted.

Except in Pa. one heck of a fine shooting off of a vechicle at any part. Cant even leave a loaded gun resting against vechicle while eating lunch.

Even on private land? Wow! Guess thats why I live in Montana. Thanks for the heads up though. In talking with a Game Warden here I was told it is legal as long as you are not shooting game. For shooting game you may use the truck as a rest but your feet need to be on the ground. Over the hood , box rail or between the door and cab is ok, as long as your feet are on the ground.

Big Buck where do you live?

Jeff

Alabama . Guess yalls can call me a full blooded redneck .


The truck is my father inlaws (black) saburbin which didnt help my barrel any. Thats why I put the card board under the barrel on top of the hood. I was sweating so hard that my but stock looked like you had poured water on it .

Thanks guys for taking the time to help me out , with your advice and help I really appreciate it !
