Ok, it just clicked. I kinda knew my buck was a typical but can the buck in the beginning of this post can be scored as four different classes? I never knew that.

Thanks for this thread!!! Very informative.

You do know that 4/8 is the same as 1/2 right? lol
You do know you are talking to a carpenter who knows his way around a tape measureright?

They are measured in 1/8ths... So you keep them in he same format while scoring.

so why did he say to round off 3/16 to 1/4 and not to 2/8?[&:]
Because it "read" smoother that way, and I didn't think someone would nitpick something so trivial after all of the time I spent making this post to help others understand the scoring system.

Maybe you could write up a better one for us all

Glad this post got bumped back up, I have a question. I got my mount back this past Saturday and want to redo the score as I know I messed up the first time around. I'm not sure where to take the first measurement for mass on it's left beam. It's a mainframe 6 with a lot of junk, and a funky base. Here are the pics, also would you consider the brow to be two points, if so which is the abnormal? They are both 1 2/8from the fork.

The smallest point between the burr and brow.

Yes. P&Y and B&C use the same scoring system.
