  1. Thanks, I've been checking the book and searching around on YouTube and they usually refer to "drop"

    If I understand this correctly "raising the comb" is the same as "decreasing drop"

    The SBE has 4 shim option A - D; A has least amount of drop, D has the most

    I'll replace the B for an A and see how that works for me.

  2. While shooting trap it seems my SBE shoots low.

    I have to cover the clay with the end of the barrel to get a good hit.


    This should be adjustable with the amount of drop in the stock?

    Which way do I go and how much


    I have a B shim installed at this time

  3. To help my shooting this fall and for the fun of it I'm shooting league trap this summer.

    I'm using a SBE, 1 1/8 oz loads of 8 shot

    I have been getting in that 18 to 22 range but seem to be getting worse. Last round I shot 14 and 16.

    The thing I notice I have to cover the clay for a good hit which tells me my gun shoots low. See, I'm thinking. Not good.

    A couple buddies pointed out is I'm stopping which is probably the biggest problem.

    How do I teach myself to follow thru?

  4. I am shooting league trap this summer in hopes to improve hits this fall.

    I've been very inconsistent ranging 18-22 hits per round.

    One thing I noticed as of late if I place the barrel beads in a figure 8 and cover the clay with the front bead I have been doing a lot better.

    I'm reading this as my gun is shooting low. Would changing a shim in the stock improve this?

  5. Getting ready for hunting season this fall some co-workers and I have decided to shoot league trap (first time doing this)

    I'm shooting a Benelli SBE and would like to know what choke and shotshells you recommend?


  6. Thanks for a couple pointer to try.


    One thing I noticed is when I do get good hits my sight picture is different, with frustration setting in I'm not sure what I'm doing differently.


    It seems when I do have a good hit I have both eyes open and my head up, not looking down the barrel at all.


    It's hard to correct something when you don't know what you are doing wrong.

  7. I have a SBE with high rib.

    In the past when taking aim on a skunk in the field I would hit high, barely shooting over the top.

    I installed a C shim to lower my point of impact and get 60/40 results when I pattern the gun.

    Problem is I can't hit a clay and it's starting to get frustrating and embarrassing. Goose hunting is right around the corner.
