Re: Holland Long Range Shooting School - Bolt Manipulation
You are correct, a larger field of view is important when recovering from recoil. Body position is another that is often over looked. If the shooter is in behind the rifle, allowing the rifle to recoil straight rearward and not at 11:00 or 1:00 as is usually the case when the shooters body is at an acute angle to the rifle.
After the shot find the target/animal in the scope and smoothly cycle the bolt, wait 20-30 seconds with the animal in the scope in case a second shot is needed.
Then its time for the Hillbilly war hoop!!!
Best of luck in all your hunts,
