2 together,then 1 flyer

I 'm seeing a lot of this in my 3 shot groups.As I think about my bench technique I think I remember shooting the first 2 fairly quick then really concentrating on the last shot.Does this sound right? My flyer is mostly low but sometimes left,right,or up.

Re: 2 together,then 1 flyer

Since you are concentrating on the third shot more, is it possible that you are moving your eye off center while concentrating on other things? With your first two shots you aren't thinking about it and your mucle memory takes over for you. When you think about it you move your hold and cheek weld point. Sometimes I notice that I am not getting my check the same on the stock resulting in the cross hairs being off center and my groups look like they came from a shotgun. Just a thought.
