Approach is okay, hold is okay,triggering is so-so but release is awful.

DIY barrel weight plus proper mental game equals tens!

I may have made a mistake… this.....or a major improvement. I don't know yet, and probably won't know for a week or so. That's the nature of changing your rifle setup...

ISSF makes it into Youtube’s Top Three

ISSF's Youtube channel just became one of Youtubes top three channels worldwide. This proves a long-known point: Shooting, in terms of how many active participants there are in it, is one of the world's largest and most successful sports, bar none. It is also great news for those of us at the lower end of things or even those in other shooting sports, because this drives up visibility and that drives up public opinion and that dictates how laws get formed.
