    Some say shooting the 21 yard is the same sight picture as the 16 yard line?
    True or False ????

    A few weeks back I shot in my first ATA shoot, and it was a day of "firsts" for me.

    1) First time shooting doubles
    2) First time shooting from beyond the 16
    3) First time shooting a 25 from 16 (in singles)
    4) First time shooting a 25 from distance (in handicaps w/penalty)

    I found that there was less movement involved to swing onto birds. I did choke up to a full choke rather than the IM I normally shoot at 16 yds.

    Long story short - it's not intimidating once you see your first smokeballed bird.

    Based on my experience having now this past weekend being bumped to 21 yards, and also shooting at longer yardage, the difference starts at 23 or 24 for me. Not as much swing but since I am a one eyed shooter it's all about visual for me.
