A "patterning" board when used to determine the pattern that a particular load gives you out of a particular gun with a particular choke is normally placed at 40 yards.
The board used for determining where a gun is shooting in relation to where you are looking is - as noted - at 16 yards.
Proper gun fit is what makes the gun shoot where you are looking.
There are a lot of people here who know more about it than I.
