Sometimes it works and other times it's a hair off ! If you understand the basic's of gun fitting ( which is easy to understand )
but it take REAL know how when you get into the finer points of adjustment . Most hunting guns only need a few minor
adjustments to be in the ball park as there usually isn't much time setting up before we shoot or our feet are tangled-up
in the mud or vegetation not allowing us to mount the gun properly .
Here are a couple suggestions to make your gun shoot where you're looking ! Or rather make you look where the gun is shooting LOL Wayne Getzky said that part of the reason for his success was that he always looked to where the the puck was going to be when he got there , not where it was now. Lost
LOP.......take in consideration the time of year you are shooting most......in what clothes you wear .
POA......gun mount , when your gun mount is the same (or as close as can be) your gun fit will be more accurate .
POI .....with a pattern that's center horizontal being the MOST important adjustment , are the others are easy .
Cast.....With cast-off being for RIGHT handed shooters , POI will depend on how chubby your cheeks are ( 1/8" can move
the patterns center 4" at 40 yds ) use shims if your lucky , otherwise leave it to stock fitter ,IMT !
All your test shooting should be with a FULL (.035) Choke with lead shot.......a MOD (.020 ) with steel shot ( 4's ,3, 2 and 1's )
