At the heavier duty end of my rifles, I have a Savage 110 BA in 0.338 Lap Mag with manufacturer's muzzle brake. I have always had some considerable difficulty reacquiring the target to spot fall of shot after firing, the muzzle always flipping to the right and taking the target out of the sight picture. I had thought that this was a muzzle brake issue and perhaps I should be thinking of changing it.
Recently, I had my first few pops with a new AI AX50 and had the same problem. A fellow 50 Cal shooter suggested that it could be my prone shooting position.
I have not had this issue with any of my lesser (but no less loved) rifles and have been shooting for some 40 years with some reasonable degree of success, both sporting and in competition.
Could it be that I now have to think about consciously adjusting my orientation to the weapon or is it more likely to be am adjustment or change of muzzle brake? ?
