    To all long yd shooters do you adjust your comb from singles to long caps?I am at the 26yd line and i am debating if an adjustement is required.I have a fully adjustible ljutic and i am currently shooting at 90/10 point of impact with a full choke.

    Some do.

    Some don't.

    As with everything, change it and see if it helps. If it doesn't, change it back.

    If you're looking for permission, you may be happy to know that Phil Kiner is an advocate of changing the comb when going from singles to handicap.

    I really do not understand why you are asking people, your choke should tell you were your shooting. I take Harlans advice for the 16s,raise your comb tell you get good smoke and then raise it some more. John

    I moved back fairly quickly back in the 80s. Adn I had a coach that emphasized "getting up into the bird" on handicap. I did what he said and it worked and I seem to carry that today. He would watch my shot pod go to the target and even tho I got a decint break, he will tell me to get a little higher. And then we would shot some more practicing that. I guess I do carry that over today.

    On the other hand, it seems that I do more adjusting to singles targets than I do handicap. Tend to see more daylight. Iws that automatic? Well in my case it is probably part of that early teaching.

    These days, when I practice handicap, I tend to minimally cover the bird and watch what his happening. I shoot a tight enough choke to watch pieces of targets go in one direction or another. So, I am still "Getting up into the bird"

    No spacer change. But again, I do shoot 100% high. easily 15" or 5-6" on a 13 yard pattern board.

    Adjust your gun for HC. Adjust your hold point for singles and leave the alone. RM
