Yes it is low, but that is where my accuracy is. At least with H1000. I took it all the way to 2960 and accuracy is OK but not great. I have no desire to hot rod her. 2866 is fast enough for me!
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
