In prep for my kindly sponsored DSC1, I had a day on the range yesterday to get some practice of sticks. This is the first time I've spent any time shooting off stick and I was sunrise at how poor I was. Vertically I was fine, but found the crosshairs swinging from side to side across the target. Any tips or advice for getting nice and steady or thought on what I'm doing wrong to have issues on the horizontal only.
Im standing with the stick angles slightly back, feet a touch wider than shoulder width and left hand holding the forestock down into the sticks. Nice and calm and holding the out breath before pulling the trigger, but I find myself wandering across the target.
