    spare pair of socks...... polarfleece hat with gloves and crawford neck warmer inside it..... lined my bro in law up on chammy last year and had just taken off my boots so used my sweaty socks for rear rest LOL sure did the trick as he bagged two with one shot.

    thanks for your replies . .

    this is what i have been using . . . . stuff bag filled with straw

    what i am after is a real improvement . . . keeping in mind this is not bigger game animals shooting where inside a 10 inch circle is good enough, its little critters so think 2.5 inch circle at maximum, and further deal . . . any tiny improvement might get a hit way out there.

    thinking that maybe a bag with the ears type maybe worth a try . . ya see them at the range, but are they of any use in the field ?

    this type look promising . .

    this guy has some interesting thoughts . . . go just past 7 minutes to get to the bit on bags

    With the new RCD virus taking hold a 'distraction' might be welcome for those long waits between rabbits.

    MAYBE......... try a nice big soft front rest and ditch the bipod completely....hold the forend and try a group and see what happens...what have you got to loose??? 1/4 hour of time and half dozen rounds....

    cheers @Micky Duck . . . using that already when using my No.1 Ruger, ( it doesnt like bipod pressure on the forend ) i like the difference of that method but all n all its not something i like to do all the time
    i also feel there is more potential for accuracy / precision at LR with a bipod in the field, so the idea of rabbit eared rear bag, could be wrong . . . but this is what i do, keep looking for improvements, sometimes you get nowhere , sometimes you get a win . . . its all part of it.

    I am concerned Fat Lab that through my efforts I may have raised suspicions about my morality ?
    May I state in my cryptic defence that I enjoy apple dumpling....

    Q Charles Lamb " Coleridge holds that a man cannot have a pure mind who refuses apple dumplings. I am not certain, but that he is right"

    I use the THLR professional bought from precision shooter in NZ. Goes good. Like gibo I use a cabinet and have it hook to my belt next to knife a bum bag. Slightly less small but works well enough for me.
