Dont normally shoot this distance(200yds) or 4 shot groups but was inspired by another thread to shoot with these parameters and see what the 10fp would do. The right to left 3-5mph full value wind got me a couple of times but overall managed to average 1/2 moa.

Those look great.
Now superimpose all those shots onto one target and measure the resulting aggregate group to find a statistically relevant estimate of what you and your gun are capable of.
Throw out the "wind" flyers if you are so inclined but my statistics professor used to insist that flyers were where all the "interesting" information in a sample comes from.

bipod shooting , huh? man we've got some good bipod shooters round here lately,... good stuff. Correcting on a bipod can be a rreal pain, and you can get thrown off very far, real easy.

Nice work. I'm inspired to get my 10fp out as well, now to just find the time.

It started life as 26" and I decided to cut it back to a much handier 20incher, threaded and installed a Thruster brake enabling me to see bullet impacts.

200 yards from a bipod with a rear bag has become my new accuracy challenge. I get about the same size groups with my 700 Rem Tactical and very slightly better with the full on 5r F class gun. Interestingly I could do that with my old 28 pound .258 unlimited class gun 25 years or more back.

Great shooting! Nice pool!:D

My 10FP likes 168gr SMKs over Varget, too.

OK, what makes the bipod such a challenge to shoot from? I'm fairly new to rifle shooting so don't be too hard on me.

I find that shooting prone with a bipod a bit more challenging due to the ergonomics involved. The lop, cheek weld differ a bit from sitting upright on a bench rest. Since you have your torso area touching the ground, your breathing has to be under control. Proper loading the bipod will help with hopping. Just like in all shooting, everything has to work together to get good consistant results. Practice, practice and more practice, sending bullets down range helps alot. I shoot two to three times a week and do mostly 4-5 and 600yds. The rifle with this handload will shoot well under 1 moa consistantly at those ranges.
