Hold 'em or...................

I really don't like to shoot "free recoil". It makes me feel like I'm not contributing much to the process. That being said I don't care to hold a rifle in a death grip either. I apply light cheek & shoulder pressure to everything I shoot, how light depends on the particular rig.

My Match 54 will tolerate more pressure than my 64 in the Fiberglass BR stock will. It (the 64BR) has to be shot just barely touching the gun. My old 64 Silhouette gun (in the factory silhouette stock) will let you hang on to it ever tighter than the 54. I just alter my bench technique based on whichever toy I'm playing with at the time.
