    Using the 13 yard poi, how high is 1 inch at 35 yards?
    Thanx

    Which if you assume a 24 inch kill pattern, you would have 15 inches above POA and 9 inches below which would be about a 60/40.

    gunruner- I understand none of your post.

    Try this. One inch high at 13 yards would be 3 inches high at 39 yards. Between 13 and 39 yards, the shot will fall about 2.5 inches. Plus you have to add 3 times the distance between the center of the bore and the front sight (ca. 2.5 inches). So, one inch high at 13 yards = about 3 inches high at 40 yards (I rounded off 39 yards to 40 yards).

    I like a couple/three inches as well, assuming the gun is of conventional design and no MX-2005, Mossberg High-rib, Ljutic Olympic or similar, all of which will shoot somewhat higher at bird ranges.

    I just call what you have, 46 trap, "just a bit high" and leave it at that. That keeps me from continuing into calculations about target-rise and all that which have no validity in light of all the other variables involved. Instead I just stay with my 1-inch datum at 13 yards and see how it works and test shooting over and under the bird to see how that works as well to see if I should go up, down, or leave it alone.

    Mark- I understood your first post to indicate that a POI 1 inch high at 13 yards would be 6 inches low at 39 yards. That is what I could not understand.

    In your second post you asked "What good does a POI 3" high (or above) the target do for scores?". I do agree that three inches high at 40 yards is way too low for most shooters. That would be about a 60/40 pattern. Most shooters need a gun that shoots higher than that.
