Response to Youve gotten comfortable in the shooters box, ranged yer target and now do you...

And, therefore, no single shooting protocol is best for everyone, your decision should be colored by a few facts:

People who are STRONGLY right handed (and therefore left brained) seem to do better when the eye follows the motion of this body. This is the case when you use a "proper sight picture" even when using scopes.

People who are of a more artistic bend, and therefore are right brained and softly ambidextrous, shoot better when concentrating on the target and holding a mental image of the sight picture they want to achieve.

We seldom consider that when we concentrate on the target, our body has to move opposite to what the eye is telling it to do. This means for most some added time during the shot cycle which translates into mainly mental fatigue.

At medium magnifications (25 +/- 10 X) shooting offhanded with both techniques will tell you what is best for you.
