    How does your XT trap o/u Pattern at 35 to 40yds, does the bottom barrel shoot higher than the top barrel? What barrel shoots flater?
    Thanks for your time.

    Every gun shoots a different pattern. You won't find two exactly the same. Too many variables involved in this equation. Rib height, barrel diameter, choke diameter, stock height, shell being used,etc. all play in the equation.

    You need to get yourself a pattern board and find out for yourself by testing your pattern. A great gentleman on this website MIA can show a photo of a pattern board he uses at his club.

    My XT shoots both barrels almost the same POI (within 1" of each other). Its a 30" O/U XT.

    My XT shoots to the same POI as well.

    The barrels are soldered together in a fixture. It would be really hard for them to be misaligned and a bend in a barrel would easily show up at the web.

    Try swapping the chokes from barrel to barrel to see if it makes a difference.

    Please keep the XT information comming. I'm a Perazzi user but I need to know how Browning sets up the XT. Thanks for your comments.

    Every regular XT I have seen shots pretty much flat out of both barrels. The XT combo's have a little higher rib on the O/U barrels and they seem to shoot around 70/30, but comb height and gun fit can change everything. Huntinandhotrods

    Mine has 30 inch barrels and both shoot to the exact same point of impact. My gun showed 90/10 at 13 yards, but somebody on here said that the 13 yard patterning was not accurate...so I went back to the gun club and patterned at 35 yards, (same choke tube..Briley XF..from a rest and the shot counted not estimated,) my gun shot 80/20 and both barrels to the exact same POI.

    30" Ultra XT, 90%+ high, both barrels are precisely regulated.

    I have very high cheek bones, most guns shoot high for me.
