As BC said, snap caps help with flinching and is a good place to start.

That being said, it is a common misconception that the shot should come as a surprise. This isn't quite accurate. While you do NOT want to be flinching or moving in anticipation of the recoil, you ALSO do want to know when the round is going to go off... in our particular line of work, we MUST be the ones who dictate when the shot will go off. With practice, you will get to the point of knowning when the shot will go off, and dictating it, all without any unwanted movement caused by anticipation.

Another good way to work through this would be to grab a shooting partner, take him/her to the range, and while you are being the bench or in the prone, have your partner chamber the rifle and place it in front of you. Either with a round, or without (the idea is for YOU not to know). Then go through the procedures of firing (a round my go off, or may not). This is a good exercise as many flaws are exposed when there is no round in the chamber.
