Negligible at best I'd guess. If they were allowed I'd probably still continue to pull strings, throw up leaves and watch my shooting partner puff on his nicotine delivery system of choice rather than tie something to my gun I'd be suprised if if allowing them made any difference in scores, if you can shoot well you'll do well, if you can't a piece piece of string won't save you
We had a bit of a debate a while ago and it appears that for ft , most shots taken at a higher level than hft prone it made a difference , so ok , we may get an advantage on any positionals , still if youve checked wind coming round trees that your using for a support and believing the direction good luck to you , dink
I dont know whether I could hang anything of my rifles, bit like adding mudguards to a mountain bike , a bell to your fishing rod , YUK
