Forums need activity to keep the focus on the sport so i propose to open forum discussions on gear, tactics, wind reading, group centring, rifle zero, true wind zero, case preparation, rest selection and many more.
Wind reading - wind reading is a skill that is in every precision rifle sport from rimfire to large bore, Short range benchrest is one of the sports where you have the opportunity to gain insight into the effects of your current conditions on the impact point of your shots.
other disciplines only have the luxury of limited sighters and business shots to count.
The common elements in all shooting sports are Wind direction strength and effect, Mirage direction intensity and visual effect on sight picture, lighting.
What are the strategies that you employ at the bench pre start time, what do you look for, what is your awareness of the surrounding information about the conditions you are about to shoot in. Do you have a plan.
Let's hear from shooters, what your thoughts are, there is no right or wrong, it is about what you have learnt and can pass on, for those who like to fence sit on topics like this be my guest you may learn something, please don't turn this learning experience into a debate it is your thoughts to share only.
Over to you all for comment.
