Do you break lock at a certain time of the count down and hope for the best?
Typically you support the missile as long as possible as all support improves Pk. Decision to snip and run has everything to do with the threat posed by the adversary and nothing to do with the chance of success of your own missile. If your minimum abort range is 15nm then you turn and run at 15nm regardless of how sweet or sour your shot is going.
