POI changes from bench to FT position are pretty much inevitable with a springer, the muzzle flips more off a bench as theres no compliance to absorb the movement, so when you park your backside on a bag its generally shooting low and off to one side, POI changes in differing positions (sitting standing etc) can be mostly cured by a bit of experimentation with rifle balance, my own HW77 which was built for FT suffered this exact problem untill I rebalanced the rifle, I ended up with half a pound of lead in the butt putting the balance point directly over where my fore hand holds the rifle, although I have never found a cure to the differing POI when shooting prone, zeroing off a bench seems to set zero for prone too but then your stuffed in other positions, so if your doing HFT you simply have to learn how much hold under you need shooting prone!
