Yes, their charge range can be so huge you never get time to shoot the mass of charging Gaunts.
A counter tactic is to go all mechanised and stay in the Rhinos/Immolators. This improves your movement rate and lets you get to where you want to go, if necessary just tank-shocking the Gaunts out of the way. Low Str Gaunts also cannot attack you in CC easily, especially if you keep moving. You can flame from the firing points or bail out and blast them. Since the Venom Cannon is the only ranged AT Tyranids have and it cannot score penetrating hits this is feasible. Just try and keep away from Tyranid MC's. If your opponent has a Winged HT, blast it with the Exo's. Flamers can devastate all but HT and Fexes if used correctly i.e. don't stand there and expect them to stop conveniently about 6-12" away when they can assault alot further than that.
