Once sighted in you can run drills. I used to set up tgts at 50 n 100 yds. The goal is to keep the gun moving and work the action.
A friend uses a Henry 22 to practice on for those western shoots. They can get really creative w Evil Roy's, coyote steel, and bowling pins. Wish I had tuned Winchester 73. ( Note: western shoots have all manner of rules on sights)
I put a couple through her. Meh , I felt it but wasn't impressed with all the " watchout it'll kick like a mule " talk right before . I didn't find it moved around all that much if you had a solid purchase as well as a firm plant on your shoulder. I'd say the idiot cut is probably an accurate description lol I couldn't see anyone but the truly inexperienced getting whacked by that rifle.
Now bench shooting ? That's a different story . I have little experience shooting anything from a bench . I like to be standing when I shoot.
That being said I'm just waiting for a few bucks and the scope is outta there. If the foolproof is as good as I hear I think I'll be very happy with it. My only concern is the FO front sight taking up too much of the peep sight picture.
