Not from rifle to rifle it's not. I said if he and his gun is capable of shoot 1moa at 100 yards then he needn't get a new gun.
If his Ruger .243 is capable of 1moa at 100 then it's also capable of 1moa at 500 yards or 1,000 yards. He'll have to use judgment and discretion insofar as the wind on any given day - same as he would with any gun.
