Just thought I would ask some advice from you knowledgeable blokes, recently I've had cause to shoot from the top of my truck (truck on rough or soggy ground, perhaps tilting slightly etc) and I cant say ive been completely happy with the outcome of every shot. Some times my shots have been spot on and others have missed my target altogether. Now im not the sort of bloke who looks at blaming anything he can to make an excuse for a lousy shot, I will readily admit pulling a shot etc if that is what I thought I have done.
Anyway getting to the point, I went down our range and did some practice from the truck roof at about 120-130 meters. The result was not impressive, I had achieved a roughly 2 inch group with a flyer out about 3 inches from the mpi.
Wondering why,, other than the possibility of me being a lousy shot of course, I considered the flexibility of the roof and its reflex type movement at the point of detonation, a possible source of inaccuracy.
So having nothing else to create a suitable stand I folded my smock and rested the bipod on it to shoot another group, the result was a tighter group and no flyers.
My question is, what are your views on shooting from truck roofs with a bipod? Can the flexibility promote inaccuracy or do I just need to get out more? Can the flexibility of the roof create a flyer. Im thinking yes, but not keen on making excuses up for myself.
Views and advice greatly appreciated.
All the best
