Re: front rest vs Bag
I have used bags (some home made, some bought), rests of different types, and bi-pods, they all will allow accurate shooting but the bi-pods to me are the easiest to use off a bench. If a stock is too flimsy the best rests of any kind will not work well. I didn't like the tri-pod type front rests but that is probably just me. I use the bi-pod with a rabbit ears rear rest and these just work, but I have never shot competition and probably never will. I have shot sub.25" groups with all of these set-ups when I have the rifle and ammo that will do it. Use what fits you. I am tall and long armed and I like the extra height the bi-pod gives me at the shooting bench.
