I'm currently using a POS Hoppes front rest w/ a small protector leather bag. My current project is a Rem 700 6-284 w/ a 29" Lilja barrel. The stock is factory HS Precision that came w/ the original 220 swift VSSF Varmint model. I would like to think that one of those nicer front rests like Hart, Sinclair, or Bald Eagle etc. would tighten up my groups. My gun is as heavy as a could make it. It has a long 29"x1 1/4 straight barrel and a muzzle brake
. The las time I did load testing, I was experimenting w/ letting the rifle recoil w/u me touching it too much and then I'd lay a couple of my fingers on the chamber top as I squezed the trigger w/ my shoulder just touching the stockbutt. I've never shot competition, but I can imagine better groups come with consistently same contact w/ the rifle. What are your thoughts on rifle rests( I'd like one w/ a windage adjustment) and some different ways to shoot itty bitty groups. My trigger is a rifle basix ret at 14oz.
