Why do we test fire our rifles at a mere 100 yards today and then brag on a 3/4 inch group?
So many magazine writers and shooters I know only shoot their rifle, even their 338 Lapua super sniper rifles, at 100 yards then begin to brag on the group. I don't get it!! Does anyone shoot for a 1 inch group at 300 yards anymore. I'm not the shooter I once was but equipment now capable of 1/4 MOA is common place and I can shoot 1/3 MOA groups. Just a few weeks ago my 11 year old nephew and my 12 year old grandson shot 1/2 inch groups with one of my AR platform 308 rifles.....from the bipod, with a rear bag, at 200 yards. It was their first such session from a bagged bipod prone position. They will both get better I'm sure.
