    High seat query

    Hi all

    Im in the process of designing a high seat which will be free standing and made from 4x2. is there any hard and fast rule as to how high to place the rail to support the rifle ?? Obviously all seats differ and people are different heights, so im guessing if sitting in the seat the rail should be just below shoulder height !? any ideas or dimensions would be much appreciated. i will be putting this together next couple of wk ends.

    From footrest seat should be 500mm the shooting rail 1050-1100mm. Obviously a lot depends on the shooting angle. but generally those measurements are comfortable to most. the rail a metre forward of the backrest. Jim
