Stock shape/form question

Here's a question. Gotta keep my learning curve up.

Since I'm shooting from the "dirt" w/bipod I find that the rifle jumps a bit better than a field of view to the right at 200 yds. @ 500 meters at times I can spot the hit. From the bench and rabbit ear pedestal rest never noticed it.

Yep its that same damned ol' 338 Win.

I've memorized the "touch/hold/feel/cheek weld" to get good groups and hit what I'm shootin at, but would like to spot the hit. Which may be asking a bit much.

Stock is a standard BDL Lefty stock.

Any suggestions?

Re: Stock shape/form question

Bipods bounce. never figured out to stop that. The best way to stop that is to use a muzzle brake. By venting properly, you can tame the recoil and moderate the bounce. Lower mag helps to.
