Trying to get some pointers and or tips for how I can better control the jump of my 7mm Rem Mag.  I've shot over 500 rounds through this rifle.  Itís sub moa. I do my own reloading. Problem is, I can't track the bullet if I constantly have to reacquire my target after every shot. I had a very good muzzle brake, and am now using a Suppressor. Still jumps.  Iíve tried holding down on the scope, but really need a third hand for that.  I almost always shoot from a prone position (or sitting when I am the Range.). If anyone has any ideas.......
Thanks in advance

Get behind the rifle properly, and load your bipod.
Every time you make a typo, the errorists win.

Modify the stock with weigh(s) (for a range gun, not so much for a field rifle) and add an effective muzzle brake.

I also tape or tie-wrap a piece of pipe insulation to add some spongyness and softness to the recoil pad of my 300 Win Mag. I don't go over board, I just add a single layer of the standard black pipe insulation because I've had major back surgeries.

YMMV
