John Snow, the Shooting Editor at Outdoor Life magazine, explains how to shoot more accurately and more efficiently from long distances. Snow starts the segment by stating that consistency equals accuracy, when it comes to precision, long-range shooting.
Snow explains how posture plays a large part in accuracy, and demonstrates how to shoot with one’s shoulder squared up at a 90-degree angle from his line of aim (which is pointed directly downrange, and locked onto the target). This posture gets the shooter directly behind the rifle, which reduces the adverse effects of recoil and allows the shooter to aim downrange for a second shot with minimal readjustment. Snow also explains the benefits of keeping the butt of the rifle in a consistent placement on one’s cheek with every shot.
