“Tominco”I feel like such a neanderthal! 
I use an Atlas Bipod and I stick a sandbag in the back. If I don’t have an Atlas, I use a Harris or a sandbag in the front. 
Before you laugh at this…
I have not placed in the top ten for 25yd ever. But, last year at EBR I placed in the top 10 for the 75 yard. I didn’t even realize it until they called my name to shoot again. I had put very little focus on the 25 and 75. 
Now, I’m in Pro Class for the next 3 years! uh! I’m gonna get slaughtered! lol! ;) Oh well… I still can’t wait to see everyone there again! :D

Don’t feel bad at all/ I shoot with two to or three(depends on venue) worlds bench rest shooters when I attend BR matches. I use leather bags front and back, with wood blocks every match,and my Field Target gun to boot. Of course it’s my choice but seeing as FT is my first choice and BR is complimentary I don’t beat myself up too much. Though I do come in last every time.
Some day I’ll have the money to spend on dedicated LV and HV 25M bench rest guns, and a front rest to match but for now I just enjoy shooting with and getting advise from some of the best.
