    I can't hardly load and shoot this fast! Let alone aim while doing it.
    I've worked with Bart and he is a master with his technique. He can coach you on the smallest things that most of us never notice or even realize. Under one such session, he asked me if i was pushing the gun up with my shoulder? I said I was. He said "are you?" He gave me that look. That look that told me I was doing it wrong. I really was not, but thought I was. Turns out I was pushing forward with my thumb on the bolt, then opening it. In my head I was doing it correct though. His eye could catch it though. Still working on perfecting it.

    When I first got my 30BR I just came off a 6PPC and did the same thing! Dang! Free recoil my butt! I may try it again but guarantee my shoulder will only be mm off the stock on that 30BR! :eek:

    I know it's not as popular these days, but anyone have any tips on right bolt right port handling? I can't bring myself to put my face in front of a port...

    Several of the Top short range guys shoot a right/right. To include Tony Boyer. It’s just as fast as a left port/right eject. The biggest problem I see with the right /right is shooters tend to come out of position (getting shoulder over the back of the stock) when reaching for ammo.

    The technique is basically the same. With a right bolt right port right eject your left hand can stay on the aiming stick. While your right hand opens the bolt, picks up a round, closes the bolt. Learn to do all of that without having to look for the ammo or bolt.

    That all sounds good but I never say a condition last for 10 shots, you better be looking at the flags.... jim

    Jim,

    This is a gun-handling thread not a flag reading thread. This technique works whether you’re shooting fast or slow. Its an excellent way to work on bench manners as well handling the gun. Conditions dictate how you shoot! Sometimes you run them, other times you’ve got to pick, occasionally you have to hit the breaks. Just depends! But it’s doesn’t hurt to have that extra gear when you need it.

    As for will it work for 10 shots...came in second HG group at the 1000 yard Nationals.
    There were only 3 targets shot in HG that were smaller than my 4.4! So it can work.

    As you know I’m a big fan of flags! Been shooting over them for nearly 30 years. Had lots of people tell me they don’t work for long range. I don’t hear that nearly as much anymore.

    That's just hilarious. I too find it easier to shoot without flags! It's so much easier to blame your equipment when you've got no flags ruining the story that you tell yourself and others about all those "flyers".

    My rear bag moves a tiny bit to the right every shot moving the muzzle left. After 5 shots my joystick is near fully right. Mike

    The butt is hitting the wrong place on your shoulder. Change your position behind the rifle until it tracks straight.

    Check out what Alex is saying. It’s excellent advice.

    Also make sure you’re not pushing on the bag with your shoulder /chest. I like about an inch of the stock to stick out behind the rear bag to keep me from moving the bag.
