TIPS for Rifle Lessons Learned –

Your hit results can go from 10% to 60% in one match just by understanding these few tips:

1- Barricade (VTAC) etc. Use the barricade as a rest. If 90 degrees then hold into the angle. Push forward into barricade 75 to 90% weight on forward leg.

2- tight close targets using scope Use the weak hand, extend arm, with the thumb up ,then grab the forward shroud. This will lock the weak arm and allow faster shooting on target. the old way a person has to wait too long in between breath.

3- Using the scope open your eyes. the eyes have it. If you miss and not engage then you forgot.

4- Know your ammo and aim point vs impact point at 10, 20, 30 yards for close in stages. for my 7.62 x 39 at 30 yards 2x 4 inches below aim point 4x 3 inches and 7x 1.5 inches scope is zeroed at 100 yards.
