    jmann,
    The pattern board will tell you the density and point of impact of your shot pattern.
    Obviously this changes with the increase in distance to the board. Trapshooters like a pattern above the point of aim and their distance depends on where they shoot the target. Skeet shooters for the most part want a lower poi in relation to their point of aim.
    There is no set distances or density. Everything depends on your personal preference. It will however let you know if your gun needs work and or adjustment.

    Wayne,

    Thanks for the feedback. I am looking for a suitable turkey load/shot size for my 2 3/4" 1100 so I want poi at poa. I have a mount for a red dot but will probably not use it unless my eyesight forces me to.

    Thanks again,
    Johnny
