    Used for PRS competition, and not always practical for many types of hunting, I have found the most effective non-prone support is the use of a tripod and ā€œUā€ or ARCA/pic rail ball mount. This system capable of duplicating the steadiness of a solid prone position from a sitting position with very fast and flexible rifle alignment. My carbon fiber tripod, complete with ball mount is 24ā€ long collapsed and weighs just under 5 pounds, and easily carried in a back pack. It also serves as a spotting scope, and or RF mount.
