i said so bcz my buddy recently put full to his xplore,ducks were not working well with decoys that day and he unexpectedly shot two times on a flock that was 80+ yards and missed with 36g #5 loads @ 1300fps,my first response,hey What the f***** are u doing??? u know he said i am shooting through a full.
later we patterned the gun and it was doing good @ max 60 yards.
1) 1st pattern gun.
2) take shot in max range that your choke and load supports.

seems to work better than trying to figure out how far out in front i should be. also u said u think you might be shooting in front of them. if the duck fluters or rocks his head up when you shoot then ya ur in front, it is hard to see when your the one shooting but its like they kinda skip or pull back a little.
