Leading the Target—Swing-Through Method
The three most common methods of leading targets at long distances are swing-through, sustained lead, and pull away.
Point your shotgun just behind a moving target and you swing with it. Increase the speed of the shotgun so that the muzzle passes the target, and then fire. In other words, literally “swing through” the target, and fire at a blank space in front of the target. Swing-through is the best technique for the beginning student.
