I'm not a Distinguished Rifleman like Jonathan, so take my opinion for what little it is worth, but I don't think the sling helps in standing or offhand either. The sling helps tons in kneeling, sitting, and prone--anywhere the elbow can rest on something and the sling can maintain the angles of the arm relative to the weapon. That way the weapon is supported by leather and bone rather than muscle.

Jeff Cooper thought the same thing for field shooting.
