How to Pattern Test Your Shotgun
Select an area with a safe backstop, and secure a 40" sheet of paper to a target stand. Mark an aiming point in the center of the paper, and set the paper up at the distance you want to test. The distance should be the anticipated distance between you and the clay (or bird) when taking a shot. Next, shoot at the aiming point from a steady rest.

To analyze the pattern, draw a 30" circle around the densest portion of the pattern. Check the pattern for evenness and uniformity. There should be enough pellets in the circle to make a clean kill, but not so many that the game would be destroyed. Experiment with different loads, chokes, and distances to find the right combination for the chosen game.
