Yes, there is more to it than that. First off here is the Bill drill if you’re not familiar with it. Shoot 6 shots as fast as you can and get all on target. The distance is up to you, obviously we always start at close distance and work to increase the distance. You can be in the standing position or seated.
So the idea is this, if you can get all shots into a specified target (8″circle) with speed then you increase your distance or bump up to hyperspeed.

If you’re getting out of control with speed and missing the target, then slow down your shots to be accurate.

If all 6 shots are on target, increase your speed (trigger pull) that you feel is fast or use a timer to record. Once you’re satisfied with the speed increase your distance.
Using this approach regulates how fast you should go to challenge yourself to be better. It is up to you to how you want to apply the concept of this drill.
