    Lately I've been shooting better in caps than singles? What am I doing wrong? This should open the flood gates. My gun has an adj comb & I got the rib set @ 90/10. Shooting 1 oz # 8 @ 1180--using mod for singles & IM for caps. Wondering if I made the gun 80/20 for singles would it help?

    You didn't say what yardage you are, but I would say yes, it will help. Try it. What have you to lose? Just take 1/16" of spacers out if you are 20-22, 1/8" if you are mid yardage, and 3/16" out if you are 26-27.

    Thanks ZZT-I'll take out the 1/16 spacer. Hope it works.

    ZZT is on the mark--- BUT in order to make it a good test DO NOT change the chokes. This way you will know if it is POI. Often times chokes will not shoot the same. Besides, (depending on brand) you are probably going to be better off with the IM at singles anyway.
