IMHO being good at HFT is a combination of....

Accurate rifle that fits correctly and is matched to an sccurate pellet.

Scope that you know i.e aim points/barcketing (if you do it) , what range it blurs, how it differs in light conditions.

Rangefinding skills

wind reading skills

Practice, practice, practice......this increases what some see as 'natural ability'.

Make sure you know the gun/scope on a decent zero range, learn more again by shooting on a course, learn more again by shooting a comp, learn more again by shooting comps at different grounds.

And of course...the most important bit....luck.
