    I found my aim points move from shooting prone and standing.
    Do people have 2 sets of aim points for different positions??

    I assume your setting up a springer, and thats usually why. The difference in shoulder tension on the rifle from prone/sitting/kneeling and standing does seems to affect the aim point for some piston rifles.

    As you say you can create another set of marks for each position, also try to relieve the tension to the back of the stock this will also make a difference, maybe someone can offer a more in depth reason as to why this black magic of the springer occurs, but no doubt its something to do with the recoil and shoulder positioning.

    That could be your head position

    The naughty course setters do that deliberately to see who can cope with it
