      An easy way to memorize this formula is to think in factors of 3. Walking tagets have a 3 MPH lead, then double them for a trotting target and triple them if it's at a dead run.

     The easiest way to remember the 3 MPH moving target leads is to COUNT IN SEVENS -- 7, 14, 21, 28, 35, 42 and you'll have the correct walking leads almost perfectly for 100, 200, 300, 400, 500 and even 600 yards.
