Did you shoot off a gun rest or your shoulder?

That picture show all your shot off to the left. Not good if that is the best pattern.

I shot it off my shoulder. I agree that this is probably the weakest part of the test. But it was obvious which ones were the ones I wasn't on target. I also tend to think my gun shoots slightly left.

Good chance that is your trigger pull.

The weird pellets in black clouds are the flight stopper pellets. Quite frankly I never found them to be that effective. I stick with Kents. Shoot cleaner, pattern better, and $10 less a box.

Great info though! I think I'm gonna get a kicks and pattern mater for my beretta now.

I won't say it's impossible, but triggle pull is a little more difficult to show on a shotgun/rifle vs a pistol

You might be right...

Your pattern seems to be just a bit low and to the left. Id run your test again.
