    In group and score shooting you need to be able to pick up the rifle vertically out of the rest. If the rest is not attached to the rifle it would be legal, though doubtfully competitive. It it were attached to the rifle it would not be legal.

    Legal or not if you wanted to shoot it in local unregistered matches they might be willing to let you do that. Find a local match and go and see. Along with the fact you can find out how competitive the combination actually is.

    I believe Rodney is right. The rest cannot be attached to the rifle. There's also a rule that the rest must employ the use of sand bags. The only class that does not have these rules is the Unlimited class. I can't find any rules for that class that would outlaw your F class Bi-pod.
