First post since I was culled recently (somewhat ironic given my username).
Due to circumstances beyond my control, for the foreseeable future I will not be able to shoot rimfire "off the elbows". After several months of zero trigger time I have put the Annie back into it's wooden stock, stuck a scope on it's rails and dug out the rest and bags.
When doing this on previous occasions I used to set the stock stop on the rest, butt the stock up to it and away I'd go.
This time, as I need to be a little more serious, I have fitted a Sinclair for-end rail adapter. This has got me thinking that there will probably be some folklore, theories and maybe some practical advice regarding where one plonks the rifle onto the the front rest.
Is it just 'suck it and see' or is there some science (or pseudo-science) to this location?
