Re: Hand position while shooting
I always put my hand to the rear of the rifle. Most times I just let the rifle jump where it needs to go. If you are on a bi-pod you can just push the feet into the table or ground. What I mean, is put forward pressure loading the feet. If you are shooting off of bags, use a tighter grip over the pistol grip locking your thumb to the stock as much as possible. Becareful not to torque the rifle to the left or right when firing or this will cause erratic grouping. Always pay attention to your position in your shoulder and repeat the position every time. I can tell when I do something different each shot depending on the recoil. It should recoil in the same direction all the time.
Example: I was on the range one day shooting my 300WSM. I was getting some really good groups. The recoil was mainly back and straight up. The last shot was a flier, but I noticed the rifle recoiled up and to the left. This tells me that I was not on the rifle the same way as the first 3 or 4 shots (I forget how many I shot for group that day). Hope this helps.
