Yes, the bipod loading is recoil management and natural point of aim. The rear bag is elevation adjustment and you don't want hard on hard... meaning hard gun on a soft rear bag, helps with recoil and returning to NPOA. Does that make sense. If you shoot off a cement bench I always place a towel or something soft on the bench and then place the bipod on it .Agreed, it must be my form. When one loads the bipod, is there any reason to go beyond enough pressure to keep the stock against the shoulder without any other additional support?
