Thanks everyone. I think I am on the right path given your comments. I switched to the Grendel for a reduced recoil rifle and I do enjoy shooting it compared to the .30-06. I think it will do anything I need it to do for my normal hunting and I will get past this flinch using it. I think my flinching is a combination of recoil and a relapse of the target panic I had with bowhunting, once the sight picture is right I just yank the trigger instead if being in control through the shot. I have gotten through the archery issue with lots of consistent mental practice and I think this is going to be the same. LR1955 I like the counting exercise, it will make me focus on the correct shot sequence instead of just yanking the trigger when I see a good sight picture, basically what I had to train myself to do with the bow. I am going to start mixing in the snap caps anytime I am range shooting to keep letting me know when I am flinching. Thanks ALL!!
