    I have one question.
    On what scope magnification do you usually shoot at?(kneeling and standing position).
    I am asking this because i shake too much in these two positions.

    I practice on x80 but when I'm shaking during a competition I drop down to x40 as there is less noticeable wobble.

    I use a Leupold Comp x 40 and slacken the ocular ring for standers which knocks it down too 40 mag , can hold a lot steadier on 40 mag .

    I reduce my mag to 40 for standing/kneeling, then turn it back up to 40 for the sitters, sometimes on the longer targets I'll turn it all the way up to 40.

    I keep it on my normal shooting mag i.e 20 mag I don't see the point in chopping and changing mag.

    On kneeling shots I always try and hold two lines of my reticle as well , this is also on 40 mag as its a lot steadier.

    I also angle my butler creek flip up to an angle of approximately 86.44678 degree using a piece of fluorocarbon fixed to the left hand nodule , this reflects sun light gaining you an extra noggin of magnification.

    I just leave my Loop Comp on 40, saves wear and tear. :p

    I turn mine up to x 35 for standers & kneelers but then back down to x 35 for the sitters.

    Might try Mr.D way as he seems to hit more targets than most:)
