Trigger pinching

Recommended Posts

Malc,

 

Several Factory Sporter shooters use this technique in benchrest - it works well with a heavy factory trigger. Can be a bit painful with a 308!

 

Cheers

I guess you would have to ask the guys shooting free recoil how they get on with the heavier hitters in regards to calibre.

 

Just stay away from the Jewel triggers if you fancy trying it.

You should see the rail-gun bench resters in the States then, they have a scope mounted on the bench and use that rather than look through the scope attached to the receiver, and then pinch the trigger.

 

The whole rifle is mounted on a large metal block on v-rails and is just a receiver and barrel with a small scope attached. With .22LR there is hardly any movement back along the rails as the whole thing is so heavy and no other part of the body touches the 'rifle' itself.

I saw that on a utube vid, What is the point?, it does not show up the shooters skill, just the proficiency of the.. well I wont call them rifles, Machine builders!!! I suppose its a case of "what ever floats ya boat".

Off a heavy Bald eagle rest and heavy rear bag trigger pinching has produced really good results for me in cals 223,6PPC and 6BR but my 308 no way! that needs a firmish hold to control and shoot tight.

All 'outdoor' rifle-shooting still comes down to wind-reading so, the 'shooter skill' is still there. But yes, the guys who shoot and build 'em just have a passion for precision and take it to the limit.
