IMHO, at 22 yds, you are correct, your head is the problem. Shoot the target as you shoot your 16 yard targets, be sure to follow through and dont stop the gun, and stay in the gun (wood on wood). To help the head problem try a 3 dram, 1 1/8 oz load of 7 1/2s. Dont over think the 22 yard line, it is only one barrel length (give or take a couple of inches) farther back than you were on the 21 yard line. Jess

One thing to remember here. You'll find that you are missing a lot of targets being both under and behind.

If you have an adjustable comb raise it up 1/16" at a time until you are breaking the targets the way you want.

You also have to put a smidgeon bit of lead on the angles. The quartering targets will drive you nuts until you realize what's going on.

Resist the temptation to shoot faster shells. They really aren't needed at this distance, or any other for that matter. The $100,000 winner at the Grand was shooting 1145 1 1/8oz shells.

panthers314, if you are not trying to aim at handicap and are not doing anything different, then it is probable that your POI is too low. Raise your comb by 1/8" and try again.
