A lot depends on the cartridge you are using due to recoil and barrel time. I have shot a great many tiny groups with the forend and grip on rests, the challenge was to use hard bags which retained their shape. Even relatively heavily recoiling cartridges can shoot brilliantly this way, some of my most consistant grouping was with a .300 Savage and a .35 Remington - well under .75 moa for four 5-shot aggregates. Even a 10” .45 LC grouped just over 1” although this chambering was more of a challenge due to the long barrel time.
Resting only the forend results in larger groups due to a less steady platform.
Was TX Nimrod. Before that I was AK Nimrod. Kept moving. Lots ‘o posts in the past 25 years.
