I am not into competition shooting in any form. I just like to shoot stuff and want to continually improve my ability. I have had no training and have no understanding of what proper form is. I’ve been working on being more consistent with my shooting process and form and am becoming frustrated. My rifle is a 308 Remington 700, with a 20” varmint taper barrel. I know it’s not as long and heavy as what most of you are shooting. I’m shooting off of a bald eagle rest that I recently purchased. Currently I’m still using the rear bag that came with an inexpensive Caldwell bag set. This rear bag is a little short for the bald eagle and I have ordered a taller protektor rear bag. Until the new bag arrives I’ve been using a small block under the bag as a spacer to get the rear bag a little taller. Here’s my question: I can’t seem to control how all my rifle returns to the rest in the exact same position after being fired and I believe this is affecting my point of impact. When I shoot, the rifle does not slide parallel straight back in the rest like I’ve seen described here by other shooters. My rifle tends to jump. Sometimes the rifle falls back into place better than other times but I generally find myself shifting everything around trying to get it lined up again, and often times I am adjusting the height of the bald eagle front rest with the big wheel to raise or lower the rest. Unless something else is going on it seems like when I have to make what I am describing as a major adjustment to get the rifle re-settled and lined back up on the target causes a substantial shift in my point of impact. Is this correct that my being inconsistent on returning my rifle to the firing position can cause sizable shifts in the point of impact? I’m including a picture of a target I shot yesterday at 100 yards to show an example of what I’m talking about. My first five shots the rifle seemed to return to the ready position without requiring any major adjustment. Shot number six I wound up having to adjust the wheel to get lined back up with the spot on the target where I was aiming and I believe this is what was responsible for the 1 inch shift in point of impact? I don’t understand how if I am aiming at the same spot on the target yet I had to adjust something on the rest differently can result in such a dramatic shift? Is that really possible? If this is possible, do I need to bear down on the rifle and try and hold it more firmly in position while shooting? Thanks.
