    I have been noticeing a slight pain in my cheek a day after shooting.I am shooting a BT-99 with adjustable comb and have shot the same gun for years with no ill effects.

    What is the cure?Should I start using that electric shave powder?Thanks PJ

    Powder might help. I found that at sometime in my life (getting older) stocks that I had custom made for me no longer fit me, due to the fact I was shouldering the gun differently. it could be related to vision, weight gain or loss, ageing, etc.

    Along the lines Setterman was going...
    Has your stock pitch changed? Gain some weight? New thicker vest or jacket that might change your previously good pitch or cast-off/on?

    I have been using a soft leather comb pad for over 25 years. Currently I have a 1/16" D&E Cheekeze pad.

    In addition to what was posted above, is it possible you are staying in the comb a tad harder than normal? If that's so, have your scores improved? You may now need more pitch adjustment to help prevent that.
