    I recently moved to the 23 yard line and my scores started to go down.I shoot an over and under berreta 682 gold E trap it shoots about 60/40 from the 16 yard line and it seems that I have to cover the birds from the 23 to break them.I also realized that I'm pretty much the only one shooting an over and under from the 23 yard line and back.Does anyone have any tips to get my scores back up to where they were.

    if he starts messing with his comb, will it mess with his 16 yd game. (he is averaging about 98% right now). he moved back from the 19 to the 23 pretty fast with some 97 and 98's. now his handicaps have droped to 90 to 93%.. what about a unsingle barrel with an adj. rib...

    dd,

    If your gun has that aweful Memory system hardware on the adjustable comb, replace it with some much better hardware. Joel Etchen and other make some nice replacement hardware that will allow you to easily adjust the comb between events. I use rubber washers to help me with the change to keep from getting screwed up.

    I was stuck for 6 months on the 23 before I raised my comb and made the 27 3 months later and shot my first 100 in singles. Ask yourself this question: If you want to keep the rising target insight above your bead, what are you planning to hit with the 40% of your pattern that is below your POI?
