We're about to find out. The reason Andy's has a flat underside is he's investigating if one tapered roll would suit everyone so 100mm to 150mm.

Here's the rules from ISSF Kneeling Roll
Only one (1) cylindrically shaped roll is allowed for shooting in the
kneeling position. The dimensions are a maximum of 25 cm long
and 18 cm in diameter. It must be made of soft and flexible
material. Binding or other devices to shape the roll are not
permitted. Kneeling Heel Pad
A separate piece of flexible, compressible material with maximum
dimensions of 20 cm x 20 cm may be placed on the heel in the
kneeling position. The kneeling heel pad may be no thicker than
10 mm when compressed with Kneeling
a) The athlete may touch the firing point surface with the toe of
the right foot, the right knee and the left foot;
b) The rifle may be held with both hands and the right shoulder;
c) The cheek may be placed against the rifle stock;
d) The left elbow must be supported on the left knee;
e) The point of the elbow must not be more than 100 mm over
or 150 mm behind the point of the knee;
f) The rifle may be supported by the sling but the fore-end
behind the left hand must not touch the shooting jacket;
g) No part of the rifle may touch the sling or its attachments;
h) The rifle must not touch or rest against any other point or
i) If the kneeling roll is placed under the right foot or ankle, the
foot must not be turned at an angle of more than 45 degrees;
j) If the kneeling roll is not used, the foot may be placed at any
angle. This may include placing the side of the foot and the
lower leg in contact with the surface of the firing point;
k) No portion of the upper leg or buttocks may touch the surface
of the firing point or shooting mat at any point;
l) If the athlete uses the shooting mat he may kneel completely
on the shooting mat or may have one (1) or two (2) of three
(3) points of contact (toe, knee, foot) on the mat. Other
articles or padding may not be placed under the right knee;
m) Only the trousers and underclothing may be worn between
the athlete's seat and heel, except that a kneeling heel pad
may be used. The jacket or other articles must not be placed
between these two (2) points; and
n) The right hand may not touch the left hand, left arm or the left
sleeve of the shooting jacket or sling.
