    Shoot the gun as is for a while as one round is not a tell all. Try and vary the type of target presentations e.g straight away, rising, falling, crossing and quartering. Note how you do on each. If...

    May I ask what choke you patterned this with? At 25 yards that pattern would indicate you had a pretty open constriction. If you want a better picture of POI whether side to side or up and down in...

    True. That's why it's called breeding not cloning.

    That said, regardless of pedigree there is nothing like seeing dog flesh in person. Some things a pedigree can't tell...

    Absolutely agree here.

    I also feel If I'm working a large field with just me and a dog I may start by walking the edges first.

    I think it's safe to say that if you were to pattern and compare those old time loads with modern day ammo you would see a stark difference, even the older plastic wads used in the 60's and 70's. ...
