Default HFT: near targets and positionals

I've been shooting HFT at Cambs (and once at LVAGC) for about a year now, attending when I can every 4 to 6 weeks and so have probably shot 10 or 11 comps. My scores quickly came up and have now plateaued at ~50. What I've realised though is that I pretty consistently miss the near and positional targets.

To try to correct this I've started practising positionals in the garden, with some good results (routinely placing 5 or 6 shots in a 15 mm circle at 25 yards). I've attended one HFT shoot since starting to practice, but failed miserably on positionals and near targets. Thinking back I think I just rushed them whereas in the garden all is calm, quiet, and collected. For the near targets, I aim to do the same but the problem seems to be parallax error and changing eye position. I thought a scope enhancer may help? Anyway, I'll let you know how I get on.

Has any one else hit a similar plateau?

All the best,
