Hopefully there are a few USMC vets here that used the old style Web sling set up during rifle qualification and qualification training. It seemed to be a very effective way of steading a rifle in any position to assist in accurate shooting. Yet in all the years I have hunted I never really seriously considered using a sling as we did in the corps for hunting. What got me to thinking about this is that I just purchased a Elk license for the Colorado draw and would like to take longer than normal shots. My hunting buddy is considering buying a bipod for his rifle to this end which got me to thinking about possibly using a sling instead like we did in the corps. Sorry to draw that question out so long but the question is: has anyone here tried using those old marine corps rifle qualification sling techniques for steading their rifles for long range hunting? I guess the other part of that question is would a bipod be more practical?
