curdog Posted February 15, 2009 Share Posted February 15, 2009 I,ve always shot a browning a-5 and always hit my point of aim dead center on a pc of poster paper . I purchased a m2 12ga with the confort tech stock and put a limb saver butt pad on it for recoil . I know that the euro guns have a built in rise to help with flushing birds or trap etc. I shot my m2 on poster paper with a dot in the middle of the paper with full choke ( squirrel hunt ) all my shot hit the top half of the paper , so i changed to the c shim but the pattern didn,t change , i shaved down a B shim and put it with a C shim it still shot high . I even put a pencil on top of the rib and shot at the dot with the dot on top of pencil making a 8 it still didn,t change . I had a friend come over and shoot gun it hit dead center with him shooting , he watched me looking down side of barrel as i shot and he told me i was aiming high . I put my cheek down as far as i could on cheek pad that i couldn,t even see front bead he looked down side of barrel and said i was aimed dead on . So i loaded gun and pushed my face down as far as i could again so much that i was guessing where front bead was and shot hitting paper dead center , i did this 2 more times same results . My question is after all this explaining what should i do . I hunt squirrels with dogs and it,s mostly fast jump shooting with the squirrels running sideways way more that rising , so i,m not sure i,ll remember are react quick enough to really putting my cheek down . Is there some way to lower the cheek pad on the gun to better fit me for jump shooting , i,ve like the m2 but i never had this problem with the browning a-5. Does anyone else have to get down as far as i have to to hit the center on my target ? I,m at my wits end please help . Thank You . Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
