Bit of help with shot gun spread please?

Working on a twin stick shooter and the shoot gun is giving me problems.
Everything works rather well, sound, delay in firing and where the pellets come from. But they don’t go in the right direction and i dont see 20 of them like expected.

Seems to only spawn between 1-3 depending exactly which way i am facing at the time. With the spread of them appearing random.
I figure it’s either not spawning some for some reason or, they are not having particle effects on them for some reason.

if anyone can tell me why they are either spawning far away from the shotgun or the particle effects are taking so long to kick in making it look like they appear so far away from the shotgun i would also appreciate that
