Default Pattern Above Sights?

Is there a preferred or recommended pattern percentage of pellets that should be above the line of sight for a Parker SBT?
Thanks!
Jim

With a figure 8, you should have aproximately a 60/40 or 70/30 percentage on paper. Each experianced trapshooter has a preferred percentage. Some prefer 100% or higher.

I think most Parker singles probably shoot where the beads are, 50-50 or a little more. A high shooter is created with stock dimensions. With a high stock, the eyes are above the beads, causing a higher pattern.
