IF I read your statement right - IF you're putting the bead on the target and pulling the trigger - odds are you're missing behind because you're shooting where the target IS and not where it WILL BE.........

this would suggest I am seeing no rib whatsoever, cheek on the stock, and just seeing the bead...) that if the bead were directly in front of the target - so that the bead was blocking the target.....I would still be aiming slightly high of the true center.
since most target-grade guns are designed to shoot high, yes you would.....float the target above the bead and give it the lead it needs

Thanks for the responses so far...I am not looking at how to shoot properly - and I am assuming a stationary target. So in other words, pertend we are aiming at a target attached to a tree - and you were trying to sight your gun in. So now, my question about the bead positioning is this:

If the shotgun were mounted on a tripod, and you were looking down the barrel with correct mount with cheek on stock and just seeing a bead with no rib. if you were trying to hit the exact center of the target, would the bead be blocking the center circle exactly - or , just down/south of there, since the bead is slightly higher than the barrel plane?

Thanks again
IF it was a field gun, designed to shoot flat - yes.....if it is a target gun, where the sight picture is designed to "float" above the rib - then no
