    I've been mounting a lot & have noticed that sometimes I can have up to 10 degrees of difference between one mount and the next, but they both feel the same. Any ideas as to why this happens, and any solutions to fix it?

    If you're describing canting, it could be caused by the height of your trigger-arm elbow or by how tightly you grip the pistol grip, especially by your little finger. I don't believe ten degrees will cause a problem.

    You better mount before you canter or you will probably have a hard time catching up to your horse. Bud

    Yes I meant anything, sorry I don't know the proper terms.

    Mike, I've never used a shooting vest in my life. Also, I use shirts that have very thin materials when I shoot.

    Put an adjustable butt plate on your gun, that will give you the same mount each time once you have it adjusted properly.
