Translate Artillery Shooting Factors

Can't get my head round these and the rules are anything but clear to me, e.g.:

1-3 Hex OK that's the range;
but what does 4+(H) 9+(H) mean?

However at 4 Hex range;
6+(H) 12+ (2H) sems to indicate the guns are more effective at longer range?

At a loss with this, any kind person care to explain it?

Looking at 100 years war army lists it says:

1 - 3 hex = 4+ (H); 9+ (2H). 4 hex = 6+(H); 12+(2H)

which I took to mean a die score of 4+ means 1 hit and a score of 9+ means 2 hits whereas - at 4 hex range 6+ = 1 hit and 12 means 2 hits.

This means guns are more effective at short range.

This is my interpretation anyway. Maybe I am wrong???

Ah, now I get it. Unexplained abbreviations and acronyms will be the death of me! Why not just put 4+ to hit, 9+ to hit, etc.?

Many thanks for taking the trouble to reply, appreciated.

Cheers,
George
