My Royale 500 is my benchrest rifle, I use a Caldwell Rock BR front rest with an Edgewood rear bag that has cordura ears, I keep the front rest tight and steer the rifle by squeezing the ears on the rear bag, probably a bit old school but works for me. Being a synthetic stock I find the rifle shoots better groups resting on the bottle, I’m guessing it likes to slide/move that fraction as the trigger breaks which can’t happen when resting on the stock, have had the same issue with some synthetic stocked powder burners, a bit of race tape on the bottom of the stock usually solves it, not sure if any of that helps,Michael, just my experiences 😆
