SureFire is a highly respected company primarily known for its illumination tools and carbine and precision rifle suppressors. SureFire has a fantastic YouTube video series called SureFire Field Notes which features some of the best shooters in the world demonstrating a specific skill set.
SureFire Field Notes recently released a video that featured Sean Murphy from Nightforce demonstrating some practical shooting techniques off a precision rifle tripod.
In the video, Sean discusses the optimal tripod setup regarding recoil, plate attachments, shooting bags, and using the tripod as a rear support. For his demonstration, Sean used a Competition Chassis Rifle from Proof Research along with a Really Right Stuff carbon fiber precision rifle tripod with an Anvil Head. The Competition Chassis features a barreled action from Proof Research and an MDT Chassis System. A unique feature of the MDT Chassis system is the full-length ARCA Rail which allows the end user to quickly attach to a tripod and move fore and aft for optimal position and stability.
