- Central Wyoming
I use a bipod when hunting antelope here in Wyoming. Have any of you experienced your rifle shooting higher than it should at ranges of 350 - 400 yards? Although I eventually got him I missed a good buck antelope at 385? yards by shooting over him twice. I shoot a .257 Weatherby Mag sighted in 3" high at 100 yards and according to ballistic tables for 115 gr Nosler Partitions I should have been 4'-5" low at 385 yards. I held slightly below his back and both times puffs of dust indicated that I hit high. Both holds were solid from the Harris bipod and the sight picture looked good when the Mark V went off. Any ideas or personal experiences with bipods would be appreciated.
