these guys have said everything I was thinking... but more eloquently
I'm a newbie (9 months) so I can only say what I have found works... no science or anything

In this hot weather I'm shooting minus my coat, for the first time... even with my naturally really low blood pressure I'm needing to practice dealing with my heart beat. Mine is from the butt hook.
As RobF said, I find the rythym of the bounce, and time the shot as the bounce points the crosshairs where I want them.
To do this I relax so the 50 mag is roughly on the target by position before I aim.
I do use a knee pad too, I have the habit of holding my knee below the pad, rather than the hamster of my rifle. This steadies my leg and prevents issues holding the gun too tightly.
