I think I will just keep eyeballing my patterns. If he can't escape the pattern, he is dead.
Ok are you serious???????????????? What I gather from all this statistical stuff is that you base your pattern entirely on center density. So if your aiming point is a one inch circle and some way you managed to squeeze all of your pellets in a 3inch circle with your 1 inch circle being the aiming point, that pattern would be dubbed better, than a pattern with a good center dense core of say ten inches with a good even pattern over say an entire eighteen inch circle.ORIGINAL: dmcianfa
P.S. = I use statistics to determine the best pattern with different combinations. i.e. Measure in centimeters each pellet hole how far it is from your target, ex. 6.5 cm (centimeters is more accurate). Average the readings (pellet hole distances). This is your mean. Then take the standard deviation of those pellet hole distances. this is your variance. The combination which has a mean closer to the target (0 cm) with the lowest standard deviation is your "best pattern" combination. Standard Deviation formula can be found on wikipedia or other just punch it into google and follow the example after you click the link to wiki. I would focus more on the Standard Deviation though, because it is much easier to move or control the mean (aiming point) than the variance (pattern).

Silvertris is somewhat correct in his post about eyeballing patterns, it gives you a good idea of the effectiveness of your gun. And I to that counting circles 10 and 20 are an effective way of comparing one load, choke, gun vs another. Coupled together with a good eye ball of the pattern for holes and tight spots, one can easily determine there best combo for their gun.
