    love the rifle rest...interesting you rest barrel directly on it...always been told thats a no no....guess it works as it is for you,740 yards and you hitting with iron sights means you must be doing something right LOL.

    yeah took me awhile to get used to doing it that way @Micky Duck

    while you are 100% correct about it being a no no
    that's because modern hunting rifles and such are shot in lots of positions and if you rested on barrel and not the stock your poi changes every time you change position
    once you zero the rifle rested on the barrel it must always be rested on the barrel some even go as far as putting a mark on the barrel so its rested in the same spot

    buffilo rifles were between 10 and 18lb so they are not offhand rifles
    they were shot off cross sticks exclusively so thats how we do it aswell
