how do i know when my contender is sighted in? when it shoots well from the rest or when it shoots well from offhand? when i rest it, it shoots way higher and i understand that its because of pressure but cmon, what if i am hunting and have a couple opportunities but one needs a rest and one does not?

will the o-ring trick help this?

also, i am buying a 10" .223 barrel soon...i think the 14" would be best but just how much am i losing with the 10"?? considering that i will be shooting no more than 1oo yards or so i would think it wouldnt matter, except for the muzzle blast lol.

so once i sight in off a rest, i can move to offhand and expect the same point of impact?

i would like to think so but in my 20-minute session to zero the 17hmr barrel i have, it seemed that the rested shots went high. i WAS resting it on my fist, on top of my truck bed, so perhaps it was just that my hand wasnt exactly the best rest.

guess it was just my hand as a rest is not good. and plus i think my 15 minute shooting session of ten shots or so wasnt enough to get used to the gun or the scope.

i will try again soon but this time at the range and let oyu guys know what i find. i really love my T/Cs :)
