This was something that I didn't think was fair, as it gave them an advantage over someone not using a mat or using the mat correctly.
I did mention this at the Greyhound and was told that it had Been going on all season and was being done by experienced shooters that where doing extremely well in the series
I never saw any of that Greg mate, if that's true and I don't doubt your word for one minute and like you say they were experienced shooters then it wasn't a mistake. They were flat out cheating! I've said it before I am in favour of a rule that prone shots MUST be taken off the elbows, the rifle MUST be shouldered and NO part of the rifle shall be touching/resting upon the ground.
You'll always get some that will cheat mate , no matter what you do!
