Basic Lesson: Using a Rear Bag Correctly
Lesson 20 Using a Rear Bag
These lessons are not intended to replace quality instruction from a competent instructor in a formal setting. There are too many small items that need to be addressed in order for this to be done correctly and without thought. Being able to accomplish the correct shooting form without thought absolutely requires perfect practice over and over until the correct neural pathways have been established. Muscle memory does not come overnight and if it is not done correctly time and time again, you will revert back to the incorrect form under stress.
John Farnam has stated: “Amateurs practice until they do it right, but professionals practice until they cannot do it wrong”. Simply put, everyone needs perfect practice.
Using a Rear Bag
As requested here is a lesson that focuses on the rear bag so you can see exactly what we are doing.
This morning I set up and mounted the new Nightforce F1 scope with the Hi Rev turrets featuring 10 mils per turn. After which I took the rifle to the range to zero it and check it. From there I rolled right into this lesson. Hopefully this will illuminate the position we are using a bit better than what is found in our other lessons.
