Which rest is on top of your bench when long-range varminting? I shoot 204 and 223 so not looking for recoil reduction.

Thx

A Harris bi-pod with set of pod-paws on the bottom and a sand bag under the rear. While I have a front rest I don't like it for the amount of moving around I do when shooting prairie dogs.

Bipods don't reduce accuracy? Back in the day that was the accepted truth. Maybe that was before free floating was so widespread as it is today.

You may be very surprised at how good a rifle will shoot off of a bipod...
I use a front rest a lot while groundhogging but it's a PITA.......
When shooting rounded foreends I really like the BullsBags for varminting...

The X bags area great. Very fast and accurate to use. I like them over a bipod or bench set up and I've used them all.

I am a high volume shooter when it comes to PD and I only use Harris S series bipods. These come with the legs that pop out and you have to manually push them back in. They are spendy but worth almost every penny.

I have used all different types of rests. All they do is slow me down. I have had many 1,000rd days and it is very hard to get that many shots off if you are playing with your setup for days in-between shots. This summer I have only shot a little over 2,000 rds in the few times I went out. Normaly it is in the 4,000 to 5,000+ round range

Granted if I was cranking in the scope for every shot I would want to be as steady as possible. I move around a lot and it is very easy to keep the dogs within 300 to 400yds on the long side.

I do take longer shots as I do have a 6mmBR and a 22-250 but I find I get to shoot far more ammo if I can keep them closer.

Thanks for the replies. I may start out with the X bag and see how that works. Is bulls bag any better than the Caldwell?
