Re: Prone shooting technique question

What helped me a bunch is to take a higher shooting position. I put a couple of blocks under my rear bag to raise it up and adjusted the front rest accordingly. It was instant help.

Also......when waitng for the pits...don't stare into the scope....move your head around...look at the flags...anything but through the scope.

This, of course is different for every shooter...this is just what helped me. It also helped my two kids and the one other new shooter that I was helping. 100% improvement with 100% of the shooters.

I shoot dedicated BR guns in "F" class, so I don't have the abillity to adjust my cheak piece...my head NEVER touches the stock....probobly a bad thing!


Good luck, and bring a friend!!!!

    Can someone explain to me why you need your cheek "welded" to the stock in F class.....makes no sence to me at all, unless it is for comfort.

    Problem solved!!!!

    After some experimenting, I found that I needed about 3/4" of foam padding underneath my stock pack. What a difference... wow. Can't wait for my second attempt at the long range shoot this weekend.
