    I know how to measure length of pull, but how do you measure "drop at comb"?

    Any other important dimensions to consider?

    Thanks,

    place a straight edge on the rib and have ti extend back over the butt of the stock. Measure the distence from the bottom of the straight edge to the center of the comb

    Be sure that if you have front and mid beads, that your straight edge does not rest on those or you will get false numbers from your measurements.
