In the latest issue of Precision Shooting (August 2001) there is an article by M.L. McPherson about bench testing techniques. On page 39 in the lower left of the page there is a photo of him shooting a lever action from the bench. The subtext describes why he is holding the forearm with his non-trigger hand (he states "while many guns will ride bags so that off hand can be used solely for minor elevation and windage tweaking by pinching rear bag, with heavy recoiling guns, better accuracy is sometimes achieved when foreend is held down and pulled back with off hand.") My question is should I probably be using this technique with my big game rifle? It is a 30 STW and I get 3100 fps out of the 200 grain Mosler Partition. The rifle and scope weigh 8.5#. Thanks for any input, Rufous.
