    This is 13 yards. And the majority of my "hits" are 5+ inches above the crosshatch. I shoot a MX3 with near 2 bead space between the beads. From 26 and 27. I do shoot standing as I think that give me a more accurate assessment of where I shoot a given gun or gun adjustment. I use this method at leas 20 times a year as I test guns. If I begin wiht a similar pellet strike as my "control gun", the adaptation to a new gun is much quicker. The prob with jsu tgoing to station 3 and banging away is tha tyou adapt to whatever POI is in that gun. And then you mess with your mind. I have another pic. I'll get that up when I find it.

    I disagree with NSXER. Stacking the beads will not give you the result you want. Sight down the gun as you would if you were shooting at a target. In real life most guys don't have the "beads stacked" when they pull the trigger.

    Ok. Here are two exapmples of 70/30 guns. The bottom row is my gun but it is shooting way low for me for hcp. The top rows are my SIL shooting his TM1 to establish in his mind where he shoots as a "control gun? He shoots this TM1

    Wear your glasses. Cardboard will work, but this is quicker (sans cardboard)

    First, you have to shoot a good score, and then, put it "on the board" to see where you are (do it on the bench). Then you have documentation of your POI.
    Consistancy is the common shooter's problem. First you have to be consistant, then, you document your POI. For some there is no change from 16 yard. For some it is +/- 1/16" up or down. YOU have to determine that. Good luck.

    Setterman has a point. But I know a lot of guys with talent that cannot describe it so that another may learn

    I had the best trainer/coach in Jack Gracey and he made me a hero in 87-88-89. Crossfire did me in, but I am over coming that and back to shooting at those levels again.

    Bring on warm weatehr. I am rarin to go.

    John. If I get to Cardinal this summer save me a spot on a hcp round will ya? I think I would prefer going to Cardinal than Wisconsin. Too old to do the same thing every year.

    I don't know if this was covered, but how do you tell what your poi was. This would be from the 13 yards from a rest. I need to pattern my gun and was wondering how many inches above your aim point would correspond to what poi.

    I hope this makes sense

    Thanks

    Broken Target- are you looking to document where your gun and you are shooting now or picking a number you think your gun should be set to? Knowing where the poi is on paper is useless if you are not smoking targets at whatever it is set at now. Shooting a couple shots at a POI board is good if you are sending the stock in for some work and want to get the gun set up the way it was prior to being worked on. Know what I mean? Have fun, Dan
