    Don, one thing that I found that helped was to actually video myself shooting various targets in the positions. Then by studying that you can see things that you are doing wrong.

    I did this and it was quite intersting that I twitched my hand that held the rifle in the sitting position on my knee which was giving me the occasional wild shot.

    Other than that its just either practise or natural talent and in my case it practise. Which reminds me I had better start have not fired my rifle since Inter-Regions in April.

    I have corrected the spelling mistake and yes depending on the way your mind works you can read into it what you think.

    They say a picture paints a thousand words and to me watching the video worked well to find the problems with my shooting technique.

    sounds a great idea to review the video :cool:

    as a thought, did you video from several different view points to get the 'all round' picture

    All round would have been better but concentrated on one side, as I shot off the knee it was the right hand side. The video also showed that I was contorting my head a bit so made some adjustments to the stock I was making at the time. It was a case of I knew I was doing something but did not know what.
