I am a 6'0" junior in high school and have been having problems in kneeling. I shoot a Red Anschutz 2213 with a super match barrel, overall about 15 pounds. I have been running into problems in kneeling because I am tall and have long arms. Because I am tall, I shoot with my elbow forward of my knee. My scores for 50ft prone have been around 97- 99, standing 89- 92 and kneeling 86-89. I will post pictures of my kneeling position so you can get some insight on any issues.

My main concerns are based on the weight of my gun, how far forward my elbow sits over my knee, and my angle towards the target.

My rear sight is a little higher than my front sight because the diameter of my sight extension tube is not as wide as my barrel. This poses a problem because the height of my sight risers in the back are really high and I cant do anything to change them.

Because I am tall, how high should my position sit.
