I have a question for you. What is considered a normal wobble area for a prone position (sling only) in MOA. I would really like to try the prone supported position once in a while, but those darn NRA referees wont let me bring use a bipod, tripod, sandbag, butsocks or rucksacks for support. I have to make do with a shooting mat, heavy leather coat, a sling, and last but not least, my nuclear stickum aerosol spray can.

Nato - On the wobble area from the prone with a sling and leather jacket. THere is no wobble when shooting with iron sights. Of course after 20 rounds slow fire I'm a bit numb, but what is a "V" worth. Seriously after 20 years of shooting with a loop sling and shooting jackets my prone is pretty solid. If you want to talk standing its another matter. If you use a proper natural point of aim and relax into a properly adjusted M1907 leather sling there shouldn't be any movement when wearing leather jackets and a couple of sweatshirts. Oh no!! Bulls-eye shooting rears its ugly head!! Hey, its a good training aid men.
