What length shooting sling

I was all in a lather to buy a proper shooting sling today. When I got to the website they had lengths from fifty to fiftyeight inches. How long do I need?

I plan to use it on a bolt action hunting rifle for prone and seated shots. I am 6' 0" and 210lbs.

    What type of sling do you want? A shooting sling is not too very comfortable but a comfort sling is not the very best shooting sling. The stretchy foam ones are really nice for a heavy rifle.

    I would like the Turner Saddlery National Match Military shooting sling. I don't know what length I need.

    The two shooters that would know how to fit that kind of sling are Milanuk and Guy M. They both shoot highpower with slings IIRC. If they don't answer, send them a PM.
