    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.

    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

    thank you all.my last gun was an 11 degree and works well but wondered if the recessed was better.but i do see where the 11 would be easier to touch up.my smith will be back next week so i am excited to get this project going.
