    Sounds right. Maybe less recoil helps? Less muzzle jump?

    Muzzle jump….recoil management.
    This is my thoughts only…many shooters , especially some I see on the many hunting shows of current production, exercise poor form, for instance … butt pad placement to the shoulder. It needs to be fully squared in contact to the shoulder. If you fire a rifle with only the bottom tip of it riding high on the shoulder, the muzzle jump is way more profound. This jump upward throws the shots high, simply because the bore axis is rising, even during the nano-seconds of time it takes for the bullet to exit the barrel. This is , to me, the reason we find so many shooters with accuracy problems. Bad habits are more than likely the main cause.

    2 more cents worth of opinion
