As someone who has set up a FT group a year before making the 600km trip to the nearest FT club, the Troyer Factor gave me a rough idea of the relative difficulty of our competitions compared to the other clubs that publish difficulty ratings. We're all self-taught FT novices. Now that we're coming up on two years of competition, skill and equipment are improving. I'm setting up the targets so that the top couple of guys are getting about 50/60, the guys with decent basic equipment who practice a bit shoot about 30/60 and the novices are in the teens. These results occur with Troyer ratings of 25-30.

Canadian rules HFT is a more like FT without ranging than British HFT. With 2 points for a knock down and 1 point for a faceplate hit. Since we've added HFT into our shoots the novices who choose that option seem happier with their scores as shooting 50-60% of the maximum possible score is much less discouraging than shooting 10-20%.
