    Spring, or in this case strut, powered rifles do not like being held rigidly, the shot cycle/spring-strut movement cause a recoil effect in both directions (a bit less so with a gas strut, but it's still present) and if the rifle is held too tightly or has a very rigid rest, it will 'fight' against it and shot consistency will not be very good.

    Look up "artillery hold" on Google and start there. Some rifles may prefer a bit more firmness on the forestock grip (as opposed to no grip at all, only a 'supprt')- but this is a matter of experimentation.
    I'd say I care- but I'd probably be lying...

    ? I have no idea what you just asked- using a shooting bag is likely ok- just don't push it into the bag. No idea what is in the rest of your post.

    It's not "bothering' - but the spelling is so far off it is hard to understand what you are asking- I am assuming you are using some sort of handheld device and it is attempting to correct things and not doing a great job of it.
