I recall that the late Paul Valdillingham used to recommend this for smoothies shooting roundball loads ... and that's where I first had heard of it.smo said:Brit,
It wouldn't have any effect on a round ball would it?
That sounds the wrong way around buddy and even so other factors can influence the outcome of this method, like the shooter themselves or stock configuration.Gene L said:Although it's counter-intuitive, by reducing your powder charge or the weight of your shot, it'll raise your pattern.
Because the recoil is less with lighter charges, the time the charge stays in the barrel is less and the recoil effects the rise of the barrel less. Thus the charge leaves the barrel more quickly and raises your pattern. I know this sounds wacky. It's worth a try, at least. There is certainly a law of diminishing returns but it will work. Whether this is practical, I don't know.
It’s the reason I don’t post things like this even if I did know.Britsmoothy said::cursing:
