Regarding shooting ahead or shoot through, I find that I do a little better shooting through. As a worker or match dr. at a state match, when shooting ahead my mind was always on what still needed to be done and all the other stressful things you think about at that time. When shooting through, almost everything is already set so that I can think about my shooting. As for an advantage, before I started running matches I was a middle of the pack shooter. After I started having more responsibilty I quickly moved nearer to the bottom.
