Bipod or mag rested?

Cheers

As Mark says, - I've found a 2 min elevation difference when shooting from a bipod after zeroing mag rested (I don't usually shoot from a bipod)

Was that with a floated barrel or a bipod off of normal hand guards?

The bipod was attached via a freefloated foreend.

My hold, combined with the change in recoil characteristics must make the difference. This was at 300 yards. I only tried it after Bus Pass Dave-UK mentioned that his bipod zero was different to mag resting. I just wanted to try to replicate his findings.

I certainly get a minute or so difference at 100 yds depending on whether I am standing or prone,

Not that this one inch difference in point of impact explains why I am so sh1te at 100 yd standing/kneeling
