Finris,

At the range, I shoot the Wolf off a concrete bench with a short Harris bipod. I shot those groups with a silly (I think Caldwell, from Midway) rear bag that I felt was too short and way too malleable. I think I had to squeeze the bag for around 20 minutes of elevation - that kind of thing just doesn't help your technique.

Last week I replaced that rear bag with a much stiffer short-ear Protektor bag...

In the field, I use traditional prone technique (adapted, of course for the bipod) - no rear support. However, I will be testing AR Tactical's lightweight poly-bead-filled rear support bag this weekend on prarie dogs. We'll see...

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
