Re: Slow fire or fast fire groups?
Poor form, jerking the trigger, not repositioning the rifle the same are all symptoms of poor rapid fire that will cause your groups to open up. How about a wobbly bench or rests?
To go fast, SLOW DOWN.
Focus on being fluid and like a machine, do the same thing for each and every shot the same. Practise, practise, practise.
Since most of my LR shooting is for hunting, I want a rifle that I can get a second or third shot as fast as possible in order to anchor a poorly hit animal. Of course, we never have one of those BUUUUTTTT I just want to be sure.
A great little widget I just bought is the Uncle Buds rifle bag. Filled with sand, this thing probably weighs 25lbs. The way it is designed, it holds the rifle quite securely.
Should really help with field shooting and reduction of recoil. Big plus, should allow you to spot impact easier.
I have seen these for years but never paid attention. On a whim, I bought one. Now I am really going to get one into my LR hunting routine. Like 'em.
