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.

    •   When someone gets to the personal aspect, whether it's me or someone else, I will challenge them and if they can justify what they have said about an individual --OK -- otherwise show me why, and if it is just their opinion say so. I'll accept that if it's their opinion.   There is nothing generic about an insult, an insult is an insult. What do you consider as a douchebag?
    • Not sure why people get so worked up about being called dummies, poopyheads and sons of bees.  Whatever, its generic insults and this is the internet.   But yeah, there's a line somewhere in the there that separates the real douchebags* from the rest of us.  You know it when you see it.   *Sorry if any douchebags felt personally attacked by being called douchebags.
    • I was addressing it to JigSawJimmy Peatmoss  response : That's an opinion, not anything more , so I let it go.
    • Created/Saved all these jobs, cut gajillions off AF1 costs, etc.  Ok, so how did the that work?  Usually these sort of dealings aren't totally one sided.  At least the carrier deal had a bunch of Pence fingerprints on tax incentives Trump took credit for.   I have doubts that King Cheeto just shows up and blows a bunch of smoke up assses and corporate executives are just like, "Yay!"   Is Trump's Twitter bully pulpit that powerful?  He randomly yells at Boeing and they just fold over for him?  I thought we realized Trump on Twitter is only for the LOLs.
    • Well hope the Trump supporters are having fun, seems those days are numbered. Turns out you can't just yell fake news at real news and make it go away. The Feds are closing in, and at best it seems Trump thinks throwing Manafort to the wolves might get them off his tail. Anywho, lots of news today.   The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign   McCain: Congress doesn't have 'credibility' to handle Russia probes    Because this happened - House Intelligence chair discloses classified intel in clumsy effort to validate Trump   Also this earlier in the day -  Former campaign manager Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire with a plan to "greatly benefit the Putin Government."     And in completely unrelated news - remember those Carrier jobs you bragged about Trump saving? Yeah, those jobs are gone. Carrier pocketed the tax breaks then screwed the workers anyway. Great negotiation there. http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/job-cuts-endure-at-indiana-factories-despite-trump-pressure-416511193.html
    •   Who are you addressing this to? I did not make the statement only re-posted it. I also don't find PEATMOSS's comment very humorous as well.   PEATMOSS said: This is still, by far, the funniest thing I have ever read on these threads in a decade.
    •   Anything you post on here from now on has no merit or credibility as far as I'm  concerned.  I wasn't even going to respond to this, but feel what you posted needed to be. If you wish to call my mother a dam, you will, the same as you called another persons mother that. I don't give a rats butt what your political views are, however when you start getting into personal attacks you had better look in a mirror. You don't probably don't know anyone on here personally, yet you attack someone on a personal bases, call there mother a dam and ridicule them because they had a lower portion of a leg amputated due to something they can control, but had no control whether they have the illness and sometime that illness makes you pay a price. BD2 has that illness he can control to a certain extent where he can lead a normal life, however there will be complications and from what I know of him he will accept that. I don't know DB2 personally, I've never met him, I've debated against some thing on this where he and I have had different views, I respect his opinions even though I disagree on many, BUT I SURE AS H--- DON"T ATTACK HIS ANCESTORY OR  ANY TYPE OF DISABILLITY
