Default scattering blast

So while debating the new use of the taus AFB i looked up blast in the BRB,BOB,BFDGRBWAHIARFOTC,bible,B5B, or rulebook for you boring people.

pg 30. para 2

"... if the hole at the centre of the marker is beyond the weapon's maximum range, the shot is an automatic miss..."

pg 30. para 5

"Note that it is possible, and absolutely fine, for a scattering shot to land beyond the weapon's range and line of sight..."

So, i'm confused ...

OK, you declare a target. The hole must be in the middle of the model. So, you checked the range from the weapon to the hole that's over the model. If it's beyond the max range, it's too far and you missed.
