    Shoot lightweight rifles

    This one should be relevant, how to get consistency with lightweight rifles. Who wants to lug around a heavy smokepole???

    Man.... every single one of these videos is great. I have no idea how you do it, but they're excellent. Thank you for making them.

    I had always been taught to lie with my legs at an angle but watching that makes a lot of sense in terms of the effect of pressure on alignment.

    Yes a good watch

    Have been meaning to add a stock pack to my K95 to get the comb to a better height for longer range shooting
    That convinced me to do it

    My K95 has the hog back style of stock, I find that with prone, uphill shots I have to have the butt high on my shoulder or else it slips down on the shot.

    They are for sure a difficult rifle to shoot well at long range uphill
    Very difficult for guys who have never fired one before

    Mine has a stupidly light trigger which is a trap for learners.
    Fine when you are used to it and you only need to touch it and it's off

    Highly unlikely, my stock was a business transaction: Dimensions traded for a stock (and I just filed my stock to fit).

    But for those of you wanting to add items to the stock, consider having a woodworker add wood and shape to fit. It's a simple process for a skilled craftsman; but you will see the difference in wood and it will affect resale value. I asked for a deliberate contrast in the wood on my prototype.

    I have a little about uphill shooting here, but it's mostly downhill. Couldn't find the previous one (more detail on uphill)

    Practice!
    At first, you make a lot of shit and hopefully you envolve to something tolerable and if you have a message, eventually something people watch and not just endure.
    I left them all out there, but I do not encourage anyone to watch below episode 300 or thereabouts
    I think most new filmmakers appearing on YouTube now starts at a much higher level than I did.

    I put the stock pack from my 500 Express on to my K95 for a hunt tomorrow.
    It's a spot where most shots are long, windy and rests are difficult because I will be shooting from scrubby face to scrubby face

    I am working on my Blaser k95 shooting, and have found i need to pull it in consistently, and hold fore end firmly, to shoot consistent groups, struggling with the 7x65 due to recoil,
    Have just picked up a edition K95, and can not get my head, down low enough, to shoot the iron sights, need more drop at comb, Dealer is currently in Contact with Blaser USA, about this, but I doubt they will do much, The new 6.5 creed barrel, has a white line iron sights, and even the instructions and 1.5 mm alen key don't fit,
    Phote so you can see the stock difference,

    My K95 bipod system is this

    A Spartan, fore end bottom metal with Spartan spigot carried in a Niggaloh pouch in my day pack.

    This K95 is my every day carry modern rifle.
    But i couldn't bear to modify the standard fore end.
    100 % of the animals I shoot over 200m have not seen me.
    So i swap the walnut fore end for my hanger / bipod fore end.

    Fore end fits in pouch and goes back in day pack before I shoot to avoid leaving anything behind

    Pretty effective way of making a K95 easy to shoot out to moderately long range without spending a lot of carrying a huge amount more weight
