i have paterned my gun many times ,but not the way you are dooing it. I will definitly try your way ,thanksNext time....place your point of aim at the bottom center point of your 30” circle..... at the bottom edge of the line. The center of your circle is 15” above that point. Shoot at 13 yards so you can easily see the point of impact. Multiply the impact point in inches above your aim point, multiply it by 3, and that’s your “inches high” at 40 yards.
Example: 5” high at 13 yards = 15” high at 40 yards = “100 %” high pattern
The target is rising. You want to deliver the center of your pattern to where the target is going.
He is saying Target from house is 30 yards and shooter from house is 16 yards, so you add those together (46). And he does say pattern 40/45 yards away.Guess I'm not average. 16 plus 30 equals 16? Must be new math.
No. He was saying the average shooter will break the target 15-20 yards out of the house, some shooters sooner. I break them around 12 yards out from the house.He is saying Target from house is 30 yards and shooter from house is 16 yards, so you add those together (46). And he does say pattern 40/45 yards away.
I agree with dukefan follow the PDF and start at 13 yards to understand how many inches above.
