.22LR barrels don't get very hot.

:)
Yep, having shot about 800 or 900 rounds now, the barrel doesn't get too hot. I actually was thinking ahead to when I get a deer rifle. Not sure when or what yet, but I figure something like a 7mm-08, cm, or 308. And I am thinking I probably need at the very least the entire summer to get accustomed to whatever it will be.

The hood of a truck and a rolled up light weight flannel coat, good for at least 400yrds or so the coyotes find is. Trees work even better if there's a low lying branch and not just the trunk. Fence posts, tractors, motorcycle handlebars, combines, atv's, hay elevators and even manure spreaders but you get the point.

Anything more static than you helps.

In this case out of truck windows may not be a good idea for the OP.

:)
In the multitude of places to shoot from in the list, that was a glaring omission.
Let's just say it was on a training range, under controlled conditions, surprised by a Federally licensed range officer.

A barricade! Just kidding. When shooting groups/zeroeing I have 3 sand bags I made myself. I used 2 gallon HD zip lock bags filled with leveling sand. Then I stuffed those in an old Denim pant leg and zip tied each end. Work well enough for me! I made 2 small and 1 large and stack as needed. Cheap enough to try and you can stick with them or spend more for a commercial bag.

A member here brought his UTG bipod one time we went shooting together and that was it. For the price it beat everything I’ve ysed prior.

Using this prone or of a table with a rear bag has become my go to.

Atlas bipod for me.
Having a solid stock is important so you can properly load the bipod with forward pressure and not have to much flex in the stock.

I have a set of homemade "Cross Sticks" , similar to what the buffalo hunters of the 1860'-80's used...
I find that they are helpful for younger shooters when shooting my muzzleloaders.

They are easy to make and inexpensive to boot.

OH good bring those things when we go to the range together that Hawken is heavy as hell! :D

What...Heavy...
It only weighs in at 10 pounds...Sheesh...I have no problem carrying and shooting it all day...Maybe you spend too much time with those lightweight modern rifles..
Wait is that the sound of "flamethrowers" warming up...?...Gotta run....:eek::p:D

We used to practice holding the bipod of the M60 MG , standing , while the gunner shot the M60 from his shoulder to shoot down low flying attacking aircraft....
I am really glad I never had to use this "practice" for real...:eek::D
