Always, and I mean always, down and to the left with new stoeger. I have pumped probably 25 shells, 3in winchester 4's, through it with both the factory choke and the Undertaker choke. I have sat and put gun in vise to do shooting. I have shot with factory and then went as far as to replace the factory bead with Hi-Viz site. Every time, down and to the left. In fact, I have even put tape to my gun saying, "Aim 1 ft high at 2 o'clock." I need some advice. I don't think I am pulling off. I am consistently steady while firing.
