22 and consistent from shot to shot. Consistency of stock weld is achieved through proper
23 placement of the rifle butt in the pocket of the shoulder. A firm contact between the cheek
24 and the stock enables the head and rifle to recoil as a single unit. Stock weld provides quick
26 and prevents the head from bouncing off the stock during recoil. The head should remain
27 erect to allow the aiming eye to look straight through the rear sight aperture. See figure 5-12.
