It sounds like Doug is using a group target (as opposed to a scoring target). The ring is for sighting and the square is where the shots are supposed to group. That is, the rifle is supposed to be...

Yes, the vast majority of the time that free-recoil doesn't work, it means there is a problem with the set-up. Something is keeping it from recoiling consistently. See my private email to you and...
