Lot's of good advice. Perfect shooting posture, stance and habits help control recoil, true that. But this is also a great example of one reason why military's no longer use cartridges like this for general duty.

Fact is that if you don't want to be pushed around by so much recoil, shoot a gun that recoils less. Comparable skill vs. comparable skill, comparable platform vs. comparable platform, the shooter with a gun that doesn't recoil as much will always recover faster for follow up shots.

The OP doesn't mention his intent or the gun he's shooting but if I read between the lines (big mistake I know) I'd say losing the .308 and getting something with less recoil would be a good place to start.
