Note that the human element is always in the equasion as long as the rifle is touching the human. Benchresters eliminate 99% of the equasion by shooting their tack drivers in free recoil as the rest atop bags on a bench and the only human thing touching them is their trigger finger tip on the rifle's 2 ounce trigger. That rifle so held recoils exactly the same way while the bullet's going down the barrel for every shot fired
As Bart say's- This is very true. It is also what turned me off on Benchrest shooting. As i tell others now-Benchrest shooting is a equipment and load test only. The human skill is no longer there. I went with F-Class and FTR class.
