Typically, when engaging a target with a scoped rifle, we make sure to keep our head on the stock, with our eye focused on the target and reticle before, during, and after the shot. This way we can reengage with follow up shots more quickly. If we have good shooting form, the rifle will recoil straight back and we’ll never loose sight of the target. If the rifle is jumping to the right or left, the shooter’s form needs correction. It can also be helpful to dial the magnification on the scope to a lower power, giving the shooter a wider field of view.
