Re: crown

I like the 11 deg. target crown. It's easy to re-do if neccesary, and easy to see if it's damaged. Also very accurate for me.

+1

I use different crowns for different purposes but mostly the 11 deg.

I don't find any accuracy advantage in any crown if it is done well, but a
big dissadvantage if it is not.

Re: crown
