    Could be a fluke because I do not believe I am this good but it’s on paper and witnesses at the range were salivating all over this during cease fire target recovery time. It is my personal best.
    Just thought I would share

    Its great to save a few of the really good targets. I used to hang them over my desk at work as a conversation starter. I got maximim respect normally from anyone in my office. :-O

    But when declaring accuracy numbers it is pretty standard to shoot five shot groups and at least five groups, averaging them for the number to report. It is possible to have only one really great group from a gun and never another again so that is why you need at least to average five groups before reporting accuracy numbers. The rifle shooting range for groups is normally 100yds. Now thats for most target and Varmint calibers. Hunting rifles of large calibers (like 30-06) are usually reported as three shot groups rather than five but averaged over at least five groups.

    But you can do whatever you like as its your gun, your ammo, and your time. Have fun!

    I have 4 but this was my best, they measured .3, .5, .5, .6 with this one being .3. I shot them on different days. The first was the .6 and then the .3 and then two .5's on the third and fourth trips.

    I use a program where I enter my shot corridinates and it tells me the group size.

    Credit where credit is due. Nice group.

    Unfortunately they don't make coins small enough to compare to my groups.:eek::eek:
