Scoring

USPSA uses both cardboard targets and steel targets to score. Steel targets are easy, steel must fall to score. Cardboard targets depend on your Power Factor (discussed below).


Power Factor

Power Factor is a way for USPSA to classify the power of your ammunition to match with others

Minor Power Factor = 9mm and above, velocity in feet per second X weight of bullet in grains / 1000 must be greater than 125.

Major Power Factor = .40 S&W and above (9mm major and 38 Super allowed in Open division only), velocity in feet per second X weight of bullet in grains / 1000 must be greater than 165.
