So here’s another first for us, the Top Posts of 2015! This is based on traffic to the AccuracyTech website, which increased approximately 600% this year over last year. That may or may not sound all that impressive, but it actually had increased 300% last year over the year before. So not only is traffic increasing, year after year, the rate of the increase is getting higher as well. These were the top ten most frequently visited articles. You may have seen some earlier as they were published. This is a chance for people to catch up on the top posts of the year they may have missed. I’m also going to talk briefly about why we believe we’re seeing these articles receive so much traffic!
Have you heard of loading a bipod? You should be doing it as you set up your position before every shot! If you have heard of it but aren’t quite sure how to pull it off then read on as we discuss how to go about loading a bipod and why it’s important! Loading a bipod is closely related to all the fundamentals of marksmanship when firing from a prone position. The purpose of loading a bipod is to take any and all slack out of the shooter and rifle system. Under recoil the rifle is going to move opposite the path of the bullet’s travel down the bore. If the shooter has introduced any angles or doesn’t have a solid position behind the rifle it will jump around more. This is where you see the infamous ‘bipod hop’ in videos. There shouldn’t be any, if the position is built correctly, the rifle just rocks back against the shooter and then back forward as recoil subsides.
