I need to raise my comb on my .308 and .270 rifles (both the exact same setup). I've long been shooting with my jaw against the comb as that was how it fit me, but recently, I realized that the inconsistent groups aren't the gun or loads, but my hold. I'm constantly shifting to get the best view since my jaw doesn't arrive in the same place everytime (dang hinged joint).
So I need an adjustable comb. I have a synthetic stock...okay, plastic...
...and I'm thinking that a saddle style comb would work great. I see that the commercial versions are $50. From previous work, I am very adept at working acrylic and can get some tomorrow very inexpensively.
Is there a reason to use zytel instead of acrylic? I can heat bend acrylic quite easily and the transparent saddle might be cool. Opinions? Suggestions?
