Target Height

What are the correct heights of targets for each of the 4 positions? If it varies with distance, what is the correct height at 25 yds and 50 yds?

I think it will depend on if the ground is level from position to target stand.
My only experience that may be close was when I did chunk-gun matches, which is prone 'over the log', or 'chunk'. We would post our own aiming points. Being able to get properly behind the gun meant that height was critical to avoid 'awkwardness'.
I used a construction 'sighting level', a portable 8"ish low powered scope with a bubble level within the field of view. I could set it up at my comfort height at my position and sight to where to mount my aim point on the backer.
Btw, nobody else did that at the time at the matches I attended, but it got some attention. And I did pretty well ; imo, for me, every little bit helps.

Refer to the appropriate Rulebook. If you intend to compete, and will shoot on more than one range, train for variation in target height. Rules often allow tolerance, and then there is the physical layout of the range mentioned above. You can adjust target height to suit you at home, but can't at a match.

The recommended target heights are in the NRA Smallbore rule book.

If you plan to compete you might want to practice on standard height targets.

Link to rule book. Note this is NRA not ISSF rules.

https://competitions.nra.org/media/7...ifle-rules.pdf

Here it is: Section 6.8

6.8 Target Height - Suggested target heights for an indoor multi-bull target should be approximately 14 to the center of the bottom bulls in the Prone position, 26 to the center of the bottom bulls in the Sitting and Kneeling positions, and up to 55 to the center of the bottom bulls in the Standing position. Target holders that would be adjustable through this range would be best.
