Off hand shooting missing to the right
« on: December 07, 2021, 01:56:30 PM »
When shooting from the bench I can hit all the way to 100 yards open or peep sight But off hand  I start missing to the right (or high right)  other than flintching what might cause this.

It's more than likely your shooting form - movement, trigger control, breath control - and not about flinching. 

Offhand is a whole different world than off bench, and separates the sportsmen from the hunters (4 and 2 legged  ;) ). 

Try this - shoot offhand, but brace the rifle against a tree, and see what happens.

I would say your follow-through might be pulling you to the right when firing off- hand.
