There are 2 things you might have already tried: move your hand stop back, or simply your hand position (tighten/adjust the strap if using one so that the fit is tight). The second is raising your butt hook (if you have one) an inch or two. If you do not have a butt hook, try raising the butt higher on your shoulder.
Before taking a shot, get into position, get your sight picture, and shut your eyes for 2-3 seconds. Open them again and look to see where you're aiming. If still low, adjust hand and/or butt. Repeat until you're 9 to 3.

"wobbling" is part of OH; that's why it's so fun
I use a technique that essentially (or theoretically) torques your spine (fun!). Get into your normal OH stance with your feet, but start by pointing the rifle to 2pm and high. HAve a lung full of air, and then slowly torque to the left while releasing about 1/2 of the air slowly. You should settle in on your bull and then follow your breathing/squeeze routine. You should feel "tight", but NOT painful.
As I mentioned before, if you are not settling on your bull's naturally, but are forcing the sites to the bull your position is off. Offhand is largely foot position (and butt hook adjustment, if you have one).
I'm not saying this "tip" is for everyone, but it had helped me when I used to shoot regularly and I still use it now. Let me know if you try it and if it helped at all.

The above assumes a RH shooter; do the opposite for lefty's.

That good stuff, erenner! " Before taking a shot, get into position, get your sight picture, and shut your eyes for 2-3 seconds. Open them again and look to see where you're aiming." That's about the best general advice. I'll be thinking about that tomorrow. The spine "torque". Now that sounds like real fun!

So, I don't know if it was new environment (indoors), or being weak from the flu that ended yesterday, or rushing due to high hourly range cost...

...but I did so poorly that at first I didn't even want to post the scores

Anyway, here they are for your entertainment (no pictures not to waste valuable space)

225 (73-0X, 61-0X, 60-0X, 31-0X) - CZ452UltraLux, NY
NRA Light Rifle, O-Class, ??? Rank
CZ452 Ultra Lux, Fed AutoMatch, factory iron open sights, 2+ lb factory trigger (spring filed)
50yd on A-31, indoor (low light/visibility at 50 yd)

249 (75-0X, 44-0X, 65-0X, 65-0X) - CZ452UltraLux, NY
NRA Light Rifle, O-Class, ??? Rank
CZ452 Ultra Lux, Fed AutoMatch, factory iron open sights, 2+ lb factory trigger (spring filed)
50ft on A-32-Modified, indoor (ok light/visibility at 50 ft)

322 (88-0X, 86-0X, 65-0X, 83-0X) - CZ452UltraLux, NY
NRA Light Rifle, O-Class, ??? Rank
CZ452 Ultra Lux, Fed AutoMatch, factory iron open sights, 2+ lb factory trigger (spring filed)
50ft on A-32, indoor (ok light/visibility at 50 ft)

I did the whole 3 rounds in 90min from start to finish (including setup and sight adjustment between different target sizes), so maybe they should count as rapid fire scores

I was able to see for myself the difference between A-32 and A-32-Modified targets. Big difference.
Should we continue using A-32, or get rid of it to avoid confusing new league members, and keep A-31-Modified as our 50ft Light Rifle target?
Anyone who would like to keep using the A-32 in January?

cowboy4, isn't target 5 an X? It appears to take out the 10, but not break into the line seperating the 9/10 rings.

I'm easily confused. Does an X completely take out the 10, or cut the 10 without touching the 9? Seems like I've heard both.

NRA rules say "X if cutting the 10 without touching the OUTSIDE EDGE of 9" (touching inside edge of 9 sill makes it an X)

NRA Conventional Small Bore, C Class, 4P, 240 - 1X
Mossberg 144LS, Wolf MT, factory Lyman sights, trigger modified to 12 ounce pull
50 yards, P. Sunny, 55 Degrees, Wind 8-17 mph @ 1:30 - 3:30, gusting to 23 mph.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Forget those first two.

















This was 10 shots off a rest after all stages:


Rough weather, new rifle (to me), didn't have time to try other ammo, but the Mossberg doesn't seem to like the Wolf MT too much.

This is 15 rounds from my CZ, but with a scope:


My goal for today was 250. 10 points shy.

Washed out for the month

Couldn't get out once this month. Between 30 mph winds, driving rain, 4" of snow and today was tornado warnings, I was skunked for December. With any luck I will be in for January. Nice shooting everyone.

Let's stick with this rule.

Until we need to start deciding winners by X count. Let's use the rule. If we need to change it to a PLUGGED 10 ring, we can. Realistically, I know I've got a LONG way to go before I need to worry about that issue.

January is open!

I made the last edits to the Rattle Board, and I think it's all squared away.
