    In general, if you shoot the pattern board from 32 yards and the center of your pattern is 7 inches higher than point of aim, what would be your pattern percentage?

    If you just stick with seven -inches-high at 32 yards, charger, you can't go wrong.

    If you need to know percentage for some reason, the link above will spell it out. Use a 75% pattern diameter of about 26 inches.

    Neil, why do you say 7inches high you can't go wrong when so many hot shots shoot 90/10 or higher? At some of the clinics they set your gun to shoot 90/10 before you go shoot at the targets.What would be the advantage?

    I used to have to shoot the beads lined up or in a figure 8. I Bought a KX-5 and had to raise the comb where I see the whole rib and lots of space between beads to shoot where I'm looking.I see the target much better and get to respond faster to it.

    I just came from the range from install a pfs stock, this week, and i raised my rib on my single barell so that my head was in a more upright position. i fired it and to my suprise it was shooting flat. What is the optimum shooting level? do you believe that 7" over is a good setting?

    Seven inches high is much more accurate and repeatable than a percentage. I have seen several fine shooters who could glance at a target and conclude it was 90/10 or 80/20 without counting any holes. When I looked at the same patterns I could not tell where the center of the pattern was within a couple of inches accuracy.

    In terms of accuracy, I do not think any gun can shoot two consectuve patterns that are both 90/10. If a gun does shoot an exact 90/10 pattern, it would be due to luck.
