I am looking for advice about which sling is best for off the elbows shooting?

my rifle weighs a ton and when shooting off the elbows it is very hard to stabilise

is there any particular sling out there that will help me to actually hit the target?

Kurt Thune slings are very good, being synthetic they don't stretch as most leather slings will do over time.

The A-T-L version will give you micro adjustability once in position on the firing line.

Almost any good quality single point sling as used for ISSF competitions are my choice. All the weight of the rifle is taken by the sling not your muscles.

There are loads here...

My own preference is a Gehmann Anti-Pulse.

could you guys recommend a UK available double sling (like the US army one) that you can use in a similar fashion to the single points (either wrapping or using a loop) - but can also carry the rifle with it

 

Thank you
