Re: front rests models, price and opinions
Don't think the Hoppes rest is a problem (if its the orange three legged thing). Been using one for lotsa years, in competition and load development. Plenty of good groups.
Do a search on Ric Horst and see his feelings on front rests. It'll frost ya.
Here's a suggestion. A) you want the forearm to slide, not grab, the front rest. B) with the trigger hand "tend" to pull the stock into your shoulder (Be cautions of elbow position and pulling straight. C)don't touch the rifle with the other hand. Use the other hand to squeeze/adjust the rear sand bag.
If you follow Ric's counsel/cil??? if you shoot at things w/the 6x284 you'll end up with a bipod and bean bag. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] Maybe even off of the bench [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
