  • Who's using a rear monopd?

    I'm using a Harris Bipod with a bean bag for the rear and would like to know who's using a monopod instead of a bean bag.
    I've been looking at the Acc-Shot Monopod but don't know if it's really worth it. This would be for hunting and target practice up to 500-1,000 yrds.

    Gunners Rear Bag here. I feel a monopod would be too constricting where a rear bag can be easily manulipated to different heights.

      They are problematic when engaging movers in the prone position. A small frisbee helps but...

        with the PGM Hecate 2 we use, they deliver a rear monopod. to help you understand how we like it the rifles looks daily used but the monopod is still brand new !!!

          I went with the Gunner's Gear rear bag myself. In fact, I just got a second one I did consider the monopod but for some reason just didn't feel it would give me the stability in position that the bag does. I can't prove that, it is just a feeling I have.

            Hey Brother,
            I had one on my EDM Arms .408 CheyTac Rifle, and to be quite honest, while it looked very cool, I didn't find it nearly as supportive and stabilizing as a good rear bag. As a matter of fact, the guy I bought my rifle from, had a custom made extension, to allow the rifle to ride a rear bag. Obviously, he felt the same way I did
            Respectfully,
            Harry

              The way things are looking I'll probably forget it. It does look cool and interesting, but.
              I'll stick with my Gunner's rear bag.

                Both mine came with it. I used them a couple of times and went back to a rear bag. It takes too much fidgeting around, and is nowhere near as stable as a bag. I actually removed it completely since it made stabilizing on the bag harder.

                  You can also try a balloon filed with birdseed (the small round ones) if you don't want to take a rear bag with you hunting. if it's too low, hold it in your left fist and squeeze it (so it bulbs upward). Think of it as something similar to a stress ball.

                    I have tried a rear pod... (I didn't believe flea and bought one, when he told me don't you won't be happy.) Well as usual he was right and I loved it on concrete, but preloading on soft earth that little nub it sinks right down into the ground. Screw that....
