I have shot at targets at 20 to 40 yards and always hit the bottom of the target, sometimes most of the shot actually going below the target (about 6-8 inches below point of aim)
Will changing my type shell or choke help with this problem? or is it simply the gun and ill have to just remember to aim high?
Co-worker of mine says that choke/load will not effect the path of my shot and that it will just simply shoot low.

After talking to the guy he told me i was not lining up my sight picture right. Since it is my first shotgun i was lining up the sights in a line and not in a figure 8. He said that should raise my shot up dramatically, ill try to get out and try it some more and see if i can get it to hit where id like it to.
I really don't like the idea of an aftermarket sight but ill do what i have to if Remington is no help if the sight alignment doesn't help any.

Ill get out soon and try to see if i can fix the issue with using the proper sight picture, if not ill probably be ordering one of those sights =/.
Ill defiantly try that choke once i get a lil more play money hehe. Until i get my aiming situation fixed with lead shot i don't think my pocket book would appreciate me trying to figure it out with those $5 shells lol.
