    checking my point of inpact yesterday, I placed 2 round dots on a large sheet of white paper 8 inches apart (why I picked 8 inches I just guessed) walked back 30 yards useing a full choke shot 5 times off handed, taking my time. inpact was always 7 to 8 inches. now if I raise my comb will it lower my inpact point and is there some what of a standard like 1/4 shim will lower it by ? thanks for any input Ed.

    When you raise the comb you will raise the POI. HMB

    If you raise your comb 1/16 inch your pattern at 32 yards will move up by about 2 inches.

    When adjusting the comb for Point of Imapct, shooting at 13 to 16 yards will give you a tighter pattern to better see where you are shooting. Then confirm at 32 yards for 16 yard targets and at added on yards for your handicap yardage.
