Might want to think about that in the future.
No 'insult' intended....just a matter of plain fact!

Used a lead sled years ago, but just use a Harris bi-pod and rear bag now. It works fine..

I was just saying, what positions do you all like...other than a lead sled....what is the best way to keep the reticle(cross hairs) as still as possible....I am not talking breathing control hear...simply put...I am asking what positions do you all use to sight your gun in. I will mostly be standing in a tree or sitting with a gun rest.
SAND BAGS front and back best way i have found
