I have plenty of room to set the rifle up so that isn't a problem although I have no idea what to zero or on what mag etc so I think I will have to do some more homework .lol
I am too used to fixed mag bushnell 10x40's for HFT you see and the closest I have come to altering PX is with my Falcon FFP !
I have tried the sitting stance and to be honest if I lay one leg down ( knee to the floor ) and use the other to rest the rifle on it's not too uncomfortable at all , this is where you tell me thats against the rules isn't it .
Looks like Bisley would be the closest for me so if the bug bites I may have to have a look there , I used to shoot at Bisley on the Friday night chip shop challenge so I am an old pro .... and never once had to buy the chips !!!

many thanks

No, you can take them all kneeling apart from the standers. thats only 4 standing targets in a Gp, regional will be 2 or 4?
Loys of people focus / range find on max mag, but then turn it down to shoot. up to you to find what works for you?
Your discription of sitting is how i often have to take mine, right leg flat on the ground.
Get yourself off to Bisley, lots of nice chaps and lasses there to help you out.
