Anybody else do this?

For the last few months I've been making an effort to get out to the range once a week (doesn't always happen) and practice shooting with at least 10, usually 20 or 30 shots in each of the 4 positions (standing, sitting, kneeling, prone) with my 22lr. A couple weeks ago I took my 308 out with some friends and all that practice had definitely helped a lot, I shot my best prone group ever with my 308 (just over 1/2in at 100yds). And from the bench shot 3 (I know, not a group, just a few shot) with the first 2 through I ragged hole and the third shot made a hole right on top connected to the first hole. So I have no doubt the 22lr practice is helping. But the thing I really noticed was the huge weight increase of the 308.

So, I've continued to practice with the 22, but I've been wearing a weight just below my wrist on my off hand (5lbs, it's one of those ankle weights they sell for joggers). Does anyone else do this? Is there any reason I shouldn't be doing this? Is there something else that may work better?

I do get some funny looks once in a while at the range, but I'm trying to improve.
