    Kreighoff states that each size hanger will move your pattern 2.5"-3", either direction you trying to go. How does that relate to POI ratios 60/40 70/30 and so on. I shoot a Floating rib 32" o/u with a #5 hanger that shoots nearly flat. I would like it to shoot around 80/20 If I was to install a #2 that would in theory raise my pattern 7.5"-9" everything else being unchanged. Is that a big dirrence, it doesn't seem that much. Any Thoughts would be great. Thanks MIKE

    You get about a ten percent change with each number. A #2 hanger should get you close to 80/20. On a O/U it only changes the lower barrel POI. HMB

    I recently changed from a number 6 hanger to a number 4 hanger and it really made a big difference. Best thing is to shoot some paper as you change things so you will know for sure.

    Good luck,

    Now just to throw a kink in the works, My buddy went through a lot of hangers to find one that had the correct POI. No two hangers seem to be the same, but generally a #2 will provide an 80/20 poi. The reason why he went through so many is because his stock isn't adjustable for comb height.
