Re: which monopod for rear support?
I have both and I prefer the Accu-shot.
Nonetheless, STL feels the Accu-shot produes about a 1/4 moa increase in vertical for him over that of using a rear bag with a bipod.

In my case, Len, the day I tested this phenomenon I shot 3 or 4 groups at 100 yards and the same at 300.
I used the same technique on the bench that I'd use prone. Specifically, I put light (but positive) downward pressure on the rear of the rifle. I do this with my shoulders, really it's the posture of my whole upper body concentrated on the upper 1/4 of the recoil pad. Also, the standard "extreme" straight-line shoulder pressure from the rifle grip.
When I used the monopod, it seemed that the behavior of the buttstock was "different". Now that's not necessarily a bad thing, but on the target, I couldn't shoot under 3/4 MOA.
So all I can truthfully draw from my testing is that my current physical approach to shooting is incompatible with the monopod.
I suppose that someone else's technique, perhaps specifically tuned to the device, coupled with a rifle that behaves differently than the Wolf, may experience better results.
I was not inclined to continue experimenting because I'd have had to change my form to get the monopod to work.
