    Help me with my shooting technique

    I took a quick video with my helmet cam today at the range of myself shooting - to try and see if there was anything in my technique I can improve on. I am working on my trigger control to try and overcome the random pulling of some shots to the right.


    The video is obviously slowed down for the shot to highlight any problems

    The rifle is my Sendero in 7mm Rem Mag. I do feel comfortable shooting it, and dont think I have any flinch, although the video does show me blinking.

    What do you think? Is there anything I should change?

    being comfortable is most important chances are is it feels awkward it will effect accuracy,breathing will help with trigger release i learnt to release trigger at the bottom of my breath and my accuracy improved ten fold, cant see anything out of the ordinary there, out of curiousity are you grouping ok?

    Lay straighter behind the butt, and put a brake on it

    looks pretty soft in teh recoil in that, I found improvements from lying straighter which gave a more straight back trigger pull and recoil was absorbed directly back, looks like it is recoiling directly but found when angled got the odd one that kicked to the side under recoil, people will tell you the bullet should have left the barrel by then but id did make improvements in consistency for me

    Yup, get straight behind it, the angle you're on with a bad trigger pull will accentuate the error and send it to the right. But if you try this new position double check eye relief, as your head will try to go it's old, usual position.

    Shoulders 90 deg to the rifle, preload bipod, natural point of aim, clear sight picture edge to edge, pad of finger 90 deg to the trigger, pull the trigger at the bottom of breathing cycle, follow through.

    Or something like that. Too much wine last night.

    Mossie rewatching your video, I'd also suggest you try the bent leg position a try. Bring your right knee up and forward, so your thigh is now at more than a 30 degrees angle. It'll lift your stomach and diaphragm off the ground so you'll have less vertical movement when breathing.
