Yep, bipod didn't help you at all!  Was the location of the bipod the same as the previous bag rest or further forward?  Perhaps the harmonics shifted some with the bipod location? 

Going back to my last range visit and results above...The one thing I noticed this visit that I am going to have to work on is my pulse getting transferred to the gun, resulting in a left-right movement of the reticle.  Looked to be about 1/2" at the target.  I think I was pulling the gun too tightly against my shoulder.  That is one change I made when I moved from prone to the bench and I think I made a mistake.  I am going to try it dry fire at home with much less pull-in pressure and see if the reticle settles down some.  If I can't reduce that wiggle, next possibility is the cheek weld change from prone to the bench, but it is probably the shoulder pull in.

I did not have also a rear bag. I find it difficult to support the buttstock with your bare hand and stabilise the rifle.

Yes, you need the rear bag!!  Don't give up on the bipod until you try it with the rear bag.
