Re: which do you prefer, bi-pod or bags
I have never tried a bipod but I do like using a sandbag on a table. I will put one under the rifle balancing it, then use my hand at the butt.
Like you, I didn't like carrying all that weight so I started using a cloth filled bag. I have only shot to 300 yards with it, but tomorrow I am trying 400 if the weather is nice.
I didn't like the cloth filled bag at first because there was movement, but I have been concentrating intently on doing everything correctly lately, and have been doing phenomenally with that bag.
"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."-- Samuel Adams
