Leading the Target—Sustained Lead
The two most common methods of leading targets at long distances are swing-through and sustained lead.
This method is a little more challenging because it requires more experience. You estimate the length of lead necessary to hit the target. Point your barrel at that position and maintain that lead as you swing with the target, fire, and continue the same swing. This type of lead is more useful when trap and skeet shooting where the path and speed of the target are steady and known, instead of when hunting where the game’s speed and path may change or vary at any moment.
