Default BFTA power rule

After speaking to ft shooters i was told the bfta limits power to 11.5ftlbs.
After reading the rules myself it states the the pellet speed must be 5fps under 12ftlbs and not 5ftlbs below 12ftlbs(11.5ftlbs).

Therefore using a 8.44gn pellet, 12ftlbs power output equals a pellet speed of 800fps.
795fps (BFTA rule, 5fps below legal limit) is a power output of 11.85ftlbs

So the limit is 11.85ftlbs not 11.5ftlbs as i was told.

Is this correct?

What ftlbs do you shoot at?
