[quote=strosfann]I notice that shooters of smaller stature tend to roll with the recoil better than bigger people do.
Astute observation. Can usually tell who is going to get their snot loosened at a shooting bench.
If a shooter seems receptive, will suggest they get more vertical. Sometimes lower bench/chair. Sometimes elevate rests.
Anatomy and stock dimensions dictate head position.
Sometimes eye relief of a particular scope/mount setup has too much to say about it.
I posted ALONG this track earlier in this thread. Getting RELAXED and LOOSE before pulling trigger.
In another thread, don't remember when, I said that on Mags I LIKE 'higher' mounted scopes...NOT the normal "theorem"
I said it keeps me more vertical and less prone to get the Scarlet Crescent !
Here's 1 example of MY set up on Black Shadow, 300 W MAG.
ALSO contrary to another 'theorem' ... I've been shooting 3" high at 100 yds for A LONG time.
Between 100-----300 yds the higher scope does NOT affect trajectory. MIND you, I'm talking about HUNTING not
humorously .... Don't Knock It Till You Try It.
