Will changing the pitch of the stock change the point of impact? How so?
Any theories or real world experience?

Thanks.

It can change the POI. For example, if you have too much pitch it is only the top of the pad that is in good contact with your shoulder/pocket. The gun will tend to recoil upward more because the axis of rotation is higher. Properly setting the pitch makes better contact with your shoulder and, all else being equal, should lower your POI a little.

I've never found the pitch to change the POI. It will change your cheek bone and jab you in the chest, if not right for you. :)

If you shoot like a 19th Century game shooter then pitch is a meaningful dimension affecting POI. If you shoot like a 21st Century target shooter then pitch is meaningless for POI. It CAN affect perceived recoil like Ajax says. Current top line coach/gunfitter stuff says "0" is a good number or maybe a taste down.

I usually buzz off the pitch to an inch down or so but less is def more and lotsa down can beat you to death.

Depends if it is beating your face up, because of incorrect pitch..

If it is... you will never have the same cheek weld..because you will lift your head trying to avoid the bite instinctively.

Naturally ..that changes everything regarding poi., and may never be the same way twice. Depends on how much you react each time...
