How to aim on a shotgun for still targets at 20 yard with shot 4 steel shot


Hi,
What is the type of choke you are using? You want a FULL choke for the tightest pattern. Then you need to "pattern" your shotgun. Put a large piece of cardboard (4' x 4') on a range backstop at 20 yards and place a highly visible 3 inch orange dot or simply draw a 3 inch letter x in the middle of the cardboard. Take a string, 36 inches long and staple it to the center of the dot or X then tie a pencil on the other end. Stretch the string out and draw a perfect circle on the cardboard 36 inches from the center, then remove the string and pencil. From a shooting bench, use a shooting rest to steady your aim. Shoot at the center dot or X by pointing the shotguns bead sight directly at the dot or x
Look at the pattern of holes the shot pellets made. If they are mostly centered within the 36 inch circle, your hold would be right on the target. If they would, say, be up from center, the hold would be below the target. Up and to the right, the hold would be down and to the left, etc.
A gunsmith can correct this and make the gun shoot so that your hold would be on the target instead of trying to compensate for the barrel characteristics of your shotgun.

Hello, John -

If you have not yet discovered the L. C. Smith Collectors Association web site, then this is the link to the association home page:
http://www.lcsmith.org/index.html

Reading the association's article here may prove instructive about your shotgun:
http://www.lcsmith.org/shotguns/1913grades.html

On the association home page, in the left side bar, scroll down to the link for Shotguns. Through that link you will find a link for Year of Manufacture. Click or tap on that link.

On the web page for Year of Manufacture, near the bottom, you will find this sentence:
(Quote)
To obtain all of the existing information about your shotgun, the Research Division of the L.C. Smith Collectors Association can search the factory production records and can provide this information in a letter.
(End quote)
http://www.lcsca.clubexpress.com/
There is a charge for such research, however.

Best wishes.
