For me it is very telling of trigger control. Try this sometime……..squeeze the trigger in line with your last joint on your trigger finger……shot probably went right. Squeeze with the very tip of the trigger finger……shot left if your right handed. Now….grip the rifle different with your trigger hand and see the small variations in point of impact. The variations may only be 1/8th inch at 20yards……but they’re there. I enjoy pursuing perfection off the bench……its not as easy as some make it sound. Notice I said pursuing……just my 2 cents. When Im hunting or shooting offhand……I just shoot and dont particularly pay too much attention to small details.
