How far from the center to you line your punter up?

Just curious? 

He is a lefty kicker witha  good leg, even though I do not care to punt, you just never know.

S

Center snap dependent.

Generally you want 10+ yards but its all about the snapper. 
Collect moments, not wins.

With 10Us I'd make it no more than 6 yards.  It was really ugly in 2007 when we tried to snap it 10.

If you dont want to be at high risk of a block.  Go 10 yards.

My experience with 10Us is that unless you have exceptionally good passing from center, the extra time the ball (usually lobbed more than you'd think) takes getting there and positioned well in the punter's hands makes it easier to block the kick, especially off the edges, if he's that far back vs. closer.
