Do you snug it snug it up and shoot your eight shots?
Or do you take it off your shoulder, loosen up, snug it back up on your shoulder and take the next shot, for all 8 shots?
I'm just curious if the rifle butt is moving down your shoulder and changing your cheek weld some as the number of shots increase.
Shooting off a bench is different than shooting prone. Shooting prone the rifle is supported by both your arms and the effects of the sling (if done properly). Shooting off a bench the shooting hand/arm usually isn't bracing/supporting the rear of the rifle as well as it would in prone.
You said you had the front on sand bags. So it should be pretty well fixed in place, it's the back I'm wondering about.
