As you point out the standing lane was not out at 45yds, which in this instance, I think proves MY theory.
The idea of two sets of targets on the Kneel/Standing lanes has been discussed at our club but IMO they should be virtually side by side to eliminate wind variation but have one 40mm and the other target a reducer(size to be determined).

I think you mean,they are by definition a much harder target than a stander,NOT the other way round?.with regards to the target having to be placed virtually at the side of it for wind drift,surely having it 5yds closer would mean it takes less wind and having said target as a reducer would make it more susceptible to the wind?
