I knows that ...
I mean when you have a wire going across middle of a 40mm kill. Wire is a foot or so in front of kill. You are aiming to try and hit the half of the kill above the wire. You err the shot but the pellet falls just under the wire but still lands just inside the kill. You score 2. Another shooter is trying to do exactly the same but his pellet hits the top of the wire and deflects for a 1 or a zero. He's actually made a better shot than you but gets less points. That's just lucky.
If it's a solid object covering an entire part of a kill to give a reduced kill or something half way to the target so that you have to know your trajectory to avoid it then that's different.
