Art of the Rifle by Jeff Cooper is a good start. But it's hard to get there without some one on one training.
Just the answer for you. Take $70, 400 rounds of ammunition, a rifle, and head off to the nearest appleseed shoot near you. It's a two day program that starts with the basics and works up to advanced methods. Positions include standing, sitting, and prone. Ranges go from 25 meters to 400 meters.
I thought I knew how to shoot a rifle until I attended one this past weekend. I was wrong. Take a chance - you won't be dissapointed.

Hold, breathing and trigger control - make up a lot of the problems. You have a lot of weight ''out front'' and I find timing is vital, in particular with breathing aspect. Way too easy to snatch shots and ''make'' them go!
Joe's suggestion is a good one - only practice will get this improved but the rewards are worth getting.
