After a you will get into a routine before you put your eye to the scope, for example mine is
- Bean bag down on ground
- pull stings to find targets
- Sit on beanbag were allowed to
- look at first target and estimate range
- adjust sidewheel so its at a distance lower than estimated one
- cock rifle and put pellet into breach
- lift string to check for wind direction and looking at the right target
- close bolt and put body and rifle in direction of target
- put eye to scope
If I am marshalling I usually say 'clock on' so the shooter knows the clock is now running.
Good practice re "clock on" I try and do the same too.
