As it was put to me, you will know your limits as far as speed and accuracy goes. Your match score will tell you if you are shooting to fast/slow by time and points down.
I had a first time shooter in a steel match 2 weeks ago trying to shoot as fast as possible. As the SO I helped him along and had him slow down and low and behold he picked up 3 seconds per string going from 11.93 seconds to 7.69 seconds just by slowing HIS pace down and improving his accuracy not needing make up shots.
As they say slow is smooth, smooth is fast
