    I shot 3 handicaps and was struggling aligning beads, not enough cast off for right handed shooter, gave the gun to gunsmith at Cardinal to get the correct cast for a RH shooter for me, gun will be back end of week, I had moved the comb the maximum to the side, I did manage a 92 one day, ran one 25 straight.

    I shot the Nitro 27s, and recoil was stiff to say the least, and they are faster than what I normally shoot, I like the 1200fps shells.

    I did find that when I gripped the gun tight I got better breaks, I think the recoil got to me and I lessened the grip.

    Hi

    Setting the gun up with the correct cast has a price - sustaining the correct cast during the gun mount and swing to the target priceless.

    Regards

    Not the same gun that shoots 25 inches high, it has been sold. And no flinching.

    Struggling to get my face for the right sight picture, was nwhere the problem existed.

    I did the close your eyes and mount the gun the way you normally shoot and the center bead as not in line w/front bead when I opened my eyes.

    I strongly reccomend Phillips Gunsmithing, very good, very reasonable and timely. 210-313-5988
