    I've never shot a handicap target in my life, so I have no experience in this subject. How much different are the leads compared to 16yd singles?

    None, If fired with same speed shell. But with that said, you will learn the correct lead for 16 yard targets if you don't know them already !!! So if you shoot the tails off targets from time to time at 16, you'll miss-em at 20 yards. Just go out and shoot them. Good Luck and Break-em all. Jeff

    I never consciously think about leads. I just look at the target and trust my gun to take care of leads. It works.

    I'm bettin' you make the transition just fine.

    20 yards always seemed easier than 16s to me. It feels like less barrel movement is required to line things up, like the hard angles are easier to catch. Wish I could still shoot from there.

    20 yard targets are not the same as 16's. There is a difference, but it's more about seeing the target as early as possible, and more lead on hard angles. Hold a lower gun. See the bird, shoot the bird.
