PRESSURE!!!! arrgggggghhhh

Well.. here is a target I was shooting... practicing for a postal match I am shooting...

the target on the right has 3 shots in it.. I was very pleased and said "can I do it again.??". the target on the left has 2 .. I got real excited and really blew the third shot... but what caused the "flier" is not what you may think and had nothing to do with the rifle and nothing to do with trigger control or cheek weld.. somthing a little more less obvious when shooting prone..

care to guess...

I'll tell ya if ya guess it...

It hit a twig just in front of you on the way?

Looks like your POI is dialed in and it's grouping well!

Re: PRESSURE!!!! arrgggggghhhh


no worries I just had a good day....

belive it or not .. and I confirmed this again today. It has to do with the way I was positioning my left foot while in the prone position. I found myself digging my toe in to "push" forward into the recoil.. and it throws the shot down and left?? If I just relax my foot (point my toe) it goes into the group... weird huh...

I guess it is just the way my body is built...
