Re: Proper Shooting Technique Help
Aiming point is important. An aiming point that is too large results in a large group. Depending on the scope and what I can see with it, I like a square that is about 0.3 MOA.
Breathing is important. You cannot hold your breath until the target blurs.
If you are shooting from front and rear bags then the sling swivel studs need to come off so they don't hang during recoil. Gun should slide easily and smoothly and straight back. I always get my rear bag out of alignment.
Foreend should be held or positioned the same for each shot. Not all guns like a hard rest for the foreend. Some want a little padding.
Shoulder pressure on the recoil pad should be the same for each shot. If the gun has a brake on it, you may, from the bench, get by with very little pressure. However, for a hunting rifle, you have to make sure how it is going to shoot under field conditions such as from a bipod.
Just from old habits, I always hunt with a barrel that has at least two rounds down it. Not all guns care about that but some do.
