    For doubles, do you prefer to have the bottom barrel shoot a higher POI than the top barrel? If so, how much higher?

    It depends if you're shooting them both on the rise, or one at the rise the other at the peak.

    I shoot them both on the rise so I prefer both barrels to shoot about the same (75/25 for me).

    I like to trap the first bird. One advantage of shooting this way is that I can fine tune the POI of the second barrel without affecting the first shot. I have found this method really improves performance on the second bird. HMB

    I prefer both barrels shoot to the same POI. I owned a barrel set the shot the U barrel higher, and another that shot the O barrel higher. I had trouble with both.

    My bottom barrel shoots 90/10 and the top 60/40, which works much better for me. I'm finally starting to shoot decent doubles scores. You need to experiment and find what works for you. Bill Malcolm

    Kay Ohye said on your doubles gun, you should be able to break 25 x 25 singles with it, using either barrel. If you can't, how could you expect to shoot 50 x 50 doubles?


    Sounds like as good a piece of advice as you'll hear.
