    Sling on top of Barrell ?

    Can anyone tell mee if using a safari type sling when you do go to shoot the sling is lying across top of your Barrell Will this have any effect on accuracy at all?

    While logic says it must change point of impact to some degree it must be minimal cos the old mans 3006 has barrel mounted sling swivel and shit just falls over, he will rest the barrel on a branch/post/ fencewire etc never seen him miss with it. certainly not ELR tho!
    His 223 on the other hand seen a few misses with that

    Duley attaches the sling around the barrel so it cant make shit all difference cause we all know how far he shoots

    Lol serious?
    I made a 1st rd hit at 2050yds the other day (witnessed by forum member) with sling not on the barrel - does that make it the best way because it was a long way??

    ? Cd was suggesting it mustn't have a lot of effect even at long range in terms of becoming a variable. You seem to have taken the option of reading into it fromsome other angle

    I had one on a lightweight 50bmg, it was fantastic for a big gun, sat across me gut and could walk hands free, one on end on the barrel other round the stock, was easy as to take on and off

    I've done heaps of range shooting at distance and shot plenty of deer at 500yards + with a sling looped over the barrel.

    I make sure the loop is not too tight and make sure that while I'm shooting it's out of the way and not under any sort of tension.

    It's a great way to carry a rifle with a longer barrel over your shoulder as you can adjust the loop further up the barrel to make the rifle sit lower on your back than a typical sling.

    If you are concerned, fit the sling so you can adjust it right out and slide the loop off the barrel when your setting up the rifle for a shot.

    Should be similar to your safari sling
