    I recently purchased a Caldwell Lead Sled for sighting rifles but realize you won't have time to set up something like that but I need something as I'm not able to shoot accurately at 300 or more yards without some kind of rest. Suggestions please. My new old Win 22-250 is pretty awsome. Before the wind picked up I was able to shoot a little less than two inch group at approx 150 yards. I quit because the wing started gusting to 30MPH. Jackie B.

    Jackie, Put a Harris tilt bipod no your Winchester. Tactical shooters are using them at over 1,000 yards.

    Try logging on to www.varminthunters.com and ask them what they are using. also try 6mmbr.com. For shooting critters in open fields a bench and a "Bench Rest Rest is used, some guys are using shooting bags (seen in Cabelas catolog) Or as others suggest. a bipod. But in brush you want as little as posible to tangle and make noise thats when I use a bipos. Try to find a copy of Varmint hunters magazine they have a lot of info about Critter hunting. Havre fun...

    Harris Bi-Pod has worked for me on everything from a Browning bar to a Remington 700 22-250. Harris Bi-Pod 75 bucks..... A coyote running full bore right in your cross-hairs? Priceless... Bang! Jeff

    I'm with Doug Brown, whatever's handy. That's usually the pick-up mirror. IME, any coyote within 300 yards isn't likely to hang around long enuf' to give you time to set up a rest much fancier.

    Now those home made ones are pretty neat. They would be height adjustable as well it would appear. Jackie B.

    Look up Varmint Al's web page. He show how to make what he calls bi-fur-pod.
    They work great and are cheap and easy to make.

    A bipod or homemade sticks works fine, you dont want to haul heavy junk around when shooting yotes anyway.

    Gee, I thought you meant something else and I thought you were looking for a way to be very hospitable to the male coyotes... Remember the saying, "This is my rifle, this is my gun. One is for shooting, the other's for fun!"


    Sorry, just couldn't resist!
