I agree ONLY shooting from a bench and rests doesn't do much in teaching shooting skills when actually hunting afield and there are no benches or sand bags about to use!

BUT for me, range s and benches are just there to show me what my rifles can do and what they like,as in loads

as without this info
just randomly getting ammo and trying to hit targets as if hunting, isn;t going to get anyone any added skills in shooting !!

and trust me after decades of doing range work, and teaching shooters and just being a shooting range so often, I about seen it all
from folks using wrong ammo, to guns exploding to shooting wrong targets and NOT knowing it, to???
it can be a scary place to be at times

I can recall MANY times when at a PUBLIC range,
seeing folks checking targets and idiots shooting at targets 20-30 ft away from those checking there targets
and the shooters NOT believing there doing anything wrong when confronted about it!
some of the arguments I have witnessed, were mind blowing on the reasons they still shot at targets!

SO, not seeing many shooting from, hunting positions
YUP that's common, but I;'ll take that any day of the week over other ways I seen folks shot at ranges!

I've been using a Savage 110 in .270 for many years. Never steered me wrong. I'm taking shots from 100-200 yards and this rifle is very accurate. Just make sure to get a good scope with low light transmission

Default 25-06

I have several rifles in 25-06 I love them it's a round round. Have killed alot of deer and ton of hogs. Going to Wyoming in Oct my wife will use hers for Antelope and Mule deer.
I like Sako 85 the best.
