    Is there a way to self diagnose problems when shooting prone

    I looked online but found nothing, but is there a way to self diagnose problems when shooting prone, or are there any human resources available to help teach someone that doesn't cost an arm and a limb. Or if I train enough will these problems work themselves out?

    What problems are you having?

    In another post/thread you mentioned using the magazine as a monopod, I'd eliminate that practice if you are going for groups.
    Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the President... - Theodore Roosevelt, Lincoln and Free Speech, Metropolitan Magazine, Volume 47, Number 6, May 1918.

    To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Sedition, a Free Press and Personal Rule, The Kansas City Star, May 1918

    Shooting off a magazine is among the less stable ways to shoot, regardless of body position. First of all, determine your goals; groups at 100 yds, farther, ten shots in the ten ring, etc... Next, get some bags if you're determined to shoot prone. You also mentioned some physical challenges in your other thread; why not shoot off a bench to optimize your accuracy? Find out how good you are before you add adversity. Sure, prone is stable, but that's subjective. Bipod and a bag minimum are what the good shooters use, so why demand a shaky sight picture? That will discourage, not encourage more practice. Walk, then run.

    Check out TC 3-22.9, specifically page E12 and E13, or page 222 and 223 on a pdf download. If you google it, you’ll find a free downloadable version. Lots of good information in there in general.

    Also, as others have said, you’ll probably shoot better groups off a bag.

    Also curious as to what problems you’re having OP, but this is a solid recommendation. Also, while there’s tons of junk on YouTube, Trigger Time TV is pretty solid. I think Kyle Defoor may have a video or two on probe shooting.
