Reducing muzzle jump

8 posts in this topic

Any idea's on how to reduce Muzzle jump on your deer / Elk rifle?

I shoot a 7 MM Rem Mag & a 300 win mag.

I have a tendency to shoot High and want to minimize this problem.

Thanks in advance

It most likely has nothing to do with muzzle jump (climb) when you shoot your first round. The bullet has already left the barrel by the time the muzzle starts moving. If your second round is high, then there are a couple things you can do. Get a muzzle break (boss system or whatever manufacture you would like or need to use), get a better recoil pad that helps position your gun on your shoulder correctly. Hold your gun tighter to your shoulder and stay down on the shot.

My guess is that with the bigger calibers you may be flinching a bit which makes you shoot a bit high. This is normal and happens to most hunters that don't shoot big calibers on a regular basis. Go to the range with a buddy, have them load or not load your gun, not tipping you off to which they did. If you squeeze the trigger and flinch with no round chambered it is very obvious what the problem is. If you practice a smooth trigger squeeze you will be better off either way. I would also consider your breathing. If you release your breath or take in a big breath that can also effect the angle of your shoulder for the shot. Practicing breathing and trigger squeeze will help your shooting more than anything.

Plus make sure your scope is sighted in. Maybe your an excellent shot with a broken scope. I rather blame my equipment, but it is rarely the problem.

The boss system can really help but wear ear plugs, they are extremely loud.

No, but I don't think that is what your dealing with. I think that is a bit of a gimmic, but that is my opinion. I have tried the mercury recoil reducers and I like the results, but I am a little bit concerned with the environmental aspect of the mercury so I got rid of it. I do think some of the limbsavers recoil pads would be worth a look.

Personnally any technology that helps you rip off 4-5 rounds quickly is really not worth the money. I would rather have one on target then 4 quick shots.

Yes the Boss system is loud. I have it on my 7mm rem mag, but it makes it so easy to shoot. I have a bad shoulder and it kicks like a .22, but could make you deaf. It is sooooo loud that your hunting partner 4 miles away will know you shot.

I lay my 7mm in my hand and try not to squeeze it and with the trigger hand I also do not grab ahold too tight, This seems to relax the arm/shoulder muscles. About the only thing I put a death grip on is against my shoulder. Just pull back and keep pressing back with out gripping

I have never used one. I hope it works for you. It will definately help with vibration, and if that makes you feel more comforable, then I am sure it will work for you. Good luck.
