    Default Most accurate position?

    I know you guys that are used to FT don't usually do prone or kneeling position but because in the HFT i used to do, you had to do certain positions, so we got used to kneeling and prone. I have found prone to be just as good as a bench rest if you do it properly. Has anyone tested both prone and sitting positions properly and practiced them ?

    Anyone that hasn't tried prone before i strongly suggest you try it!sitting is much better than kneeling though, to much movement in a kneeling position! %-6

    I have only shot prone a couple of times - but found it very uncomfortable. Also what put me off was the 'rules of the prone postion'. I came across something about only the elbow of the left (for RH shooters) arm allowed to touch the ground and something about a greater than 30 degree angle.

    This was a while back and I can't remember if it applied to FT / HFT or 50m Olympic.

    Well it kinda put me off the position altogether - so I just starting sitting like I saw other people doing.

    Most stable position?? Gun clamped in a portable vice.
