1. Orient body for NPA.
2. Bone support, not muscle support.
3. Trigger control.
4. Break the trigger immediately when the sight picture is good.

1 and 2 above will keep your wobble centered on target.

3 and 4 will mitigate the effect of wobble.

Try to break the trigger as your sights approach the center of the target or come into the target, not when it's on target.
