    Ok Bluesman, that's an awesome technique! I'm gonna have have to look into that one more

    On a serious note though, I agree that paper tuning can tell you a lot, but I've also seen (and experienced) some anxiety when a bullet hole is being a pain to obtain. I've gotten to the point that I start with a paper tune, mainly to get my rest height/nock height set, and remove any major tail whippage or help check for bad contact. Then I move into a French tune (learned from Nuts & Bolts as well Sonny). I will finish with a walk back out to 40 or sometimes 50 and I usually don't have to move much if any.

    There are lots of ways to check and or improve tune and some will give better or different feedback that you can glean information from. Besides if you ain't tinkering you aren't shooting enough LOL.
