    Can we combine laziness and accuracy in measuring shotgun patterns ?

    Sometimes folks draw 30 inch circles and count the number of pellets inside the circle and the number of pellets outside of the circle... Divide the number of pellets inside the circle that by the total number of pellets counted... And use that percentage to discuss the quality of a shotgun pattern.

    Can we just count the pellets outside the 30 inch circle... Subtract that number from the total number of pellets in the shell as quoted in various sources... And assume the difference is the pellets inside the 30 inch circle ? Then do our division for the percentage.

    Given my experience with my kids counting money...

    The accuracy of the reported number of pellets in the 30 inch circle might actually go up.

    When placing patterns on a clay target, my accuracy is affected by laziness.
