What is your preferred rest at the shooting bench for grouping your shots? Lead sled? sight vise?

    An old seabag stuffed with old clothes works okay for me. Or prone using some terrain feature, like a log.

      6-8 shot bags filled with sand, laid over a bench rest.

        Rabbit eared sand bags, but after watching Petzal shoot offhand through a 2x3 inch opening I'm embarrassed.

          The guys that are very serious shooters and use my covered rifle range all seem to use a height adjustable front rest and multiple rear sand bags at the rear. You can trust me when I tell you that some of these men can shoot some tiny groups at 200 yards. Most of these men wouldn't know what to do to hit a game animal. I always try to do my shooting hanging onto a tree branch to steady myself.

            To make sure my rifle is sighted in I use a a rest called a Titegroup. You can google it.

            It works great. With factory loaded(Federal Fusion 150 grain) I get 1-1.5" groups at 100 yards. Then I can practice with a rifle that I know is shooting straight.

            You're not going to lug a rest with you while hunting though so after it is sighted in put the rest away and shoot the way you'd shoot at a deer or whatever you're hunting.

              Sandbags are best. Your rifle shoots differently, depending on what's backing up the stock. I've had a lot of luck this way with boresighting and a one-shot sight-in. I'll take another shot to verify and then put it up until it's time to hunt. I've found further shooting to be non-productive. Let it cool for an hour between shots.
