I have been shooting my Encore 7 Mag all summer trying to find the correct bullet combo for the gun.... I shoot OK groupings but have a few questions??? I have a good gun holder to shoot with....

1. I have been told not to press down on the barrel just past the scope when i shoot but my twin does that and he shoots pretty good groups?

2. I hold it still and take a breath and squeze the trigger and the dang thing nearly hops to the side, I fill if I could hold the barrel with my front hand and hold it down that it wouldn't jump as much???

3. Because of the Big caliber will the 7 mag be harder to pattern than other smaller calibers...

Thnaks for your help....
