In my case, a Ruger No 1B, cal 40-72w /12 twist , 460 gr bullet, 1320fps
Torque seems to be quite a problem with this one.

How does one gain control of that torque?

The worst offender I have is a rolling block straight stock in 35-40 maynard . Has a 1/10 twist barrel and 330 grain bullet, very little recoil but it will certainly torque. A hard grip and pulling hard into my shoulder only opens up groups. LB
