    Hutch has a good point too. Alot of guys shoot a release that's too long for them. I use the second pad of my finger to fire the release, not the tip of my finger. That helps prevent jerking the trigger.

    I use a qad drop away.

    I worked with it a little last night. I'm pretty sure that it was my grip. The way my sight system works is once its set, you have to repeat exactly the same sequence of hand position, anchor point, everything to get the front pin to line up with the rear dove tail. I'm pretty sure I had set the sight up with to aggressive of a grip. So I started from scratch, reset up the rear sight, re sighted in with the front pins. I now have the grip if the meaty part of the webbing of my hand, with knuckles roughly 30-45 degrees. My consistancy is much better. Still working on the dialing in, but at least I'm consistantly off the same every time. And the few groups I did shoot are much better at distance.
    Just for clarity I have the eliminator extreme rear sight if it was a regular peep I would be done by now. But I like the system and want to work with it so I need to learn patience. My biggest issue right now is running out of left hand adjustment in the front sight. But I rewatched the instruction dvd last night and have a new way to attack.
    Also have you guys noticed differences in how much a click or two adjust left or right on a sight at 10 yds compared to 30? Am I right in assuming just like a rifle scope, that close in it takes more clicks to get it centered, then further out?
    If the question doesnt make sense check out the website for my sight, or my album has a picture of the rear sight.

    ok, that helps. I was trying to dial in to much at like 10 yds, just hoping to raise the sight as it got out farther. I think I will get it reasonable with some left adjustment left, take it out to 35 then dial in the left to right. that might just solve my problem.

    Essentially you are trying the walkback method of tuning. You may have to tweak your rest a bit. Once this is done you should shoot dead center at all distances. Yes, if the sight is off a bit it will show up more at longer distances, but if your centershot is correct then you should be able to sight in at 30 yards or so and see no appreciable change at 10 yards or vise versa.
