So I'm drifting off to sleep a few hours ago and the though went through my head that since you always want to keep the bird above the bead in trap why would I want my gun to shoot anything other than 100/0. Right now it's shooting 70/30 and I'm doing pretty well with it but think of the possibilities! So, why shouldn't I change my POI today.

Make it 200/0 and then you will shoot twice as good. You can hold at the front of the trap house and when the bird comes out you only have to move the gun left or right. HMB

Because shooting "at" a bird is a lot easier, throughout the course of an event, than shooting under it.
But there's no reason you shouldn't try it, if that's your question. In fact, you should, but you have to give anything like at a few events/practice sessions to get used to it. Keep track of the scores and you should know in a month or two if it is better for your (or not).

As far as I know, that's the only way to find out.

I'm in Neil's camp. It's far easier to point your finger directly at an object than some measurable number below or over it, consistently!

I'm sure that there are lots of good shooters with POI's higher than 100/0. That doesn't mean it's for you. If you're doing "pretty well", throw your adjustment tool away until you hit a wall with your scores.Then it may be time to raise your POI.
