What Daryl said.

Get some paper and some shells and shoot 13 yards from the patterning board for determination of the POI.

Next do 33 yards for analysis of the pattern.

I have to disagree with you Bill. Cutts should never be put on a SBT. What you need is a poly choke. More fitting for a Parker SBT. Get the one with the ventelated extension. Remember not to cut the barrel to less than 18". You want to keep the gun legal.

Thanks for the 18” reminder. I would have hated to make that rookie mistake especially after the duct tape that was holding the drinking straw pulled all the finish off the forend.

My Cutts barrel is finished at 30" with the tube that is in the gun. I bought the barrel inexpensively from a gun parts dealer and it clicked right on a 30" gun in my collection. It makes a single trap much more useful for hunting compared to using the full choke barrel.

Come on Bill. I know you are messing with us. You would never hunt with a SBT. That's what Benelli autos with black plastic stocks are for. l wouldn't enter a New England grouse covert without one. I like how high velocity maximum loads of #4's work on the grouse and woodcock. If a deer flushes you can take a head shot with the 4's. It's a good all around load and gun. You need to get with the times Bill and change your aberrant ways.

I actually used the Cutts SC on a preserve pheasant shoot and was embarrassed at the success I had with one "bullet" in the gun. I have a couple of Parker order copies that show Colonel Cutts ordering Parker singles to test his compensators. In my "yout" (courtesy Yogi B.), I saw a Cutts equipped Ithaca 4E in the window at Tendler's Sales, 913 D Street N.W. Washington, D.C. but know nothing of its provenance. They are out there. We might as well use them.

OMG Bill. All these years I thought you were a purist. Must be your Maryland upbringing. Yankees such as myself would never think of installing one of those horror devices on a fine gun. But to each his own. If you hunt grouse with me someday don't bring that gun. You would no doubt be bitten by my dog if not me.

Bill, you seem to have an endless supply of order book stuff. Do you have one (or more) of the missing books? I was under the impression that my forty bucks for a research letter went to good use, but If you'll take less on the dark web, maybe we can do some business. I could use a new watch too. Maybe a nice knockoff Rolex.

My collection of order book copies came from the trash receptacles in the Archives at The Arms when we copied the records in 1998. The trash cans held copies that were not suitable for use by PGCA. I think James Hall has a similar collection. Your mistaken impression that I am in possession of more than "trash" is brought on by the fact that I freely share my research material, unlike some other individuals and organizations.
