How Do I Figure My Hit Factor?

Recommended Posts

Hit Factor is a fancy way of saying points per second.

To figure out what hit factor you got on a stage: take the points that you hit...subtract any penalties...then, divide the points you are left with by your time.

For example,

Say a stage has 120 points possible.

The shooter might come along and earn 104 points with their hits. They might of had a penalty (miss, foot fault, ect.) that would subtract 10 points from the 104 earned. So, now they are sitting at 94pts (104 - 10 = 94).

Lets say it took them 12.6 seconds to shoot the stage. 94pts. / 12.6seconds = 7.4603 hit factor.

With Fixed Time stages, your hit factor is simply your points.

Easy...

For a 16 target stage:

HF=((T1p/T1t)+(T2p/T2t)+(T3p/T3t)+(T4p/T4t)+(T1p/T5t)+(T6p/T6t)+(T7p/T7t)+(T8p/T8t)+(T9p/T9t)+(T10p/T10t)+(T11p/T11t)+(T12p/T12t)+(T13p/T13t)+(T14p/T14t)+(T15p/T15t)+(T16p/T16t))/16

I prefer to simplify it to:

HF=(T1p+T2p+T3p+T4p+T5p+T6p+T7p+T8p+T9p+T10p+T11p+T12p+T13p+T14p+T15p+T16p)/(T1t+T2t+T3t+T4t+T5t+T6t+T7t+T8t+T9t+T10t+T11t+T12t+T13t+T14t+T15t+T16t)

So, if you had a target stage:

Your equation ignores penalties.....

.....and doesn't work for fixed time stages.....

....otherwise, nice try -- too much time on your hands? :D :D

I don't get penalties and there is no such thing as hit factor in a fixed time stage. :closedeyes:

Ok, back on topic...

I think the original poster's intent was to better figure out hit factor to determine stage performance. Here are some ideas to improve hit factor:

- New shooter- doesn't matter, have FUN and shoot A's. You'll never have decent HFs if you can't shoot the points!

- B-C class- shoot Alpha/Charlie fast as you CAN SEE SIGHTS. If you are shooting more than 1-2 D's a match, you ain't watching!

- A-Master- shoot 90-95% of available points

- GM- shoot 95%+ of available points

- Pro- shoot 97%+ of available points

For scoring purposes, your hit factor = points for a fixed time stage.

T#p=T# points - penalties

Classifier scored at 103% what dose that mean? It was 3% over the best hit factor or GM group? Is there a list of the best hit factors somewhere?

The list of high hit factors is kept under wraps for some reason.

Was this a 13 series classifier by chance? If so its probably wrong

I made a spreadsheet that may be helpful learning / tracking USPSA scores.

 

It is dynamic so load in PF and info from practiscore (or hypothetical stage) and it calculates everything. 

 

I built it in excel but here it is in google spreadsheets for ease of sharing. This works best on a desktop rather than cell phone.

Hope this is useful for somebody out there!

uspsa is points per second.  Take your total points for the stage, and divide it by you time
