    Film: How to shoot better with a hunting rifle.

    A step-by-step guide to quickly improve your bipod shooting.
    Perhaps a bit fast moving, but there was a lot of information to cram into 4 minutes.

    An excellent episode thanks. Always good to re-assess the way you're doing things from time to time, see what you've forgotten to keep doing.

    Nice, I like the bringing thumb and finger together technique.

    Year there’s some stuff there that is of use but you can keep the cross arm shooting I’m sticking with holding that forend and off a backpack.
    Nice video though.
    It's all fun and games till Darthvader comes along
    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.

    Shoot my 243 that way but no way would I shoot my 358 win without holding the fore end. Dam thing would flip over my shoulder if I was not hanging on to it.
    Some good ideas in that video and a reminder about technique.

    It's not a lot of pressure, it equals what is needed to break the trigger.
    Equal amounts, equal increase. My mental image is putting the center of the thumb palm on the top/side of the trigger finger palm (could be different with different hands).

    Do you follow the same establishing process with heavier recoiling calibers? When do you add forward shoulder (bipod load) pressure?
    Ive find loading the bipod on my 284 enough to keep a good sight picture messes with my natural poa. Bipod hop has been an issue for me in this rifle

    Love the Bipod Thomas. What make? Not sure I would have the meat in my forend to mount the spigot unless I could fix it to a picatinny somehow.
    Do what ya want! Ya will anyway.

    Thanks Norway,

    I like that idea that thumb and finger position around the trigger define where the rest of your hand goes onto the pistolgrip.

    I try to set up my bipod / bench rest position with NPOA on the target before my right hand touches the rifle, then carefully grasp the stock without disturbing the NPOA. If the grip pulls it off aim either the hand position or body position is wrong.

    Also, shooters note: that trigger finger needs to be at right angles to the trigger so it pulls directly back towards the thumb in the rifle midline.
    In this video Norway has only hinted at the importance of recognising your natural point of aim and described just a few of the ways it can be made wrong, without going deeply into how to correct things if you find yourself in an unfavourable position.
