    How far is it from the 27yr. line to where the bird breaks in the air for the average shooter. Not a snap shooter but one that follows aims and fires more normal/average speed??????

    What is the typical distance for a target shot from the 16-yard line?

    And, if anyone knows, for the two birds in doubles????

    At the 16 around 33 yards. At the 27 42-45 yards. I shoot the 16 at 30 yards, and the 27 at 39-41 yards. At least according to the Dri-Fire computer lazier system. But, I'm a quick shooter. I believe in the old saying "speed kills," then the wind will have less effect. However, the downside of speed is shooting over straight-aways.
