3 or 4 miles per hour on a radar gun is a lot and would change the targets 5 or more yards at the stake. It would be very obvious shooting a 45 MPH target compared to a 41 MPH ATA recommended setting. No one would be guessing.

If you have a trap kid setting targets on a manual machine. How the target is placed can a big differance. On automatics sanding or changing the rubber buffer on the arm can reflect on target spin. A target without spin will float or be more effected by weather.

My guess is...if you have experienced trap machine members doing the setting. Score variance would be more related to being able to see the target clearly. Sun angle, cloud cover, dusk. Maybe pick-up targets without bright paint. Wind lifting the targets will kill the average shooters score, as well as dropping targets from a back wind.
