There are two common ways of leading. Both of the methods require practice. Experience will help your timing and accuracy. Swing-through is the best technique for the beginning student.

Leading the target with swing-through method
  1. Point your shotgun just behind a moving target and swing with it.
  2. Increase the speed of the gun so that the muzzle passes through the target and then fire. In other words, literally “swing through” the target and fire at a blank space in front of the target.
