measuring groups = measure the distance between each shot > 3shot group .20 +.27=.36=.83divided by 3 =.276 is the correct does the yardage effect this

Unless you are really getting down to the nitty gritty of match competition or something, I think most just measure from the middle of the two bullet holes that are the furthest apart and it's best to measure a five shot group. That is usually done on a 100 yard range and the term used for your group is normally called Minute of Angle (MOA). My three main rifles used out in Wyoming, for an example, all shoot to less than 3/4 MOA (3/4") at 100 yards and are zeroed for 200 yards.

3.6" at 600 would be a bit over 1/2 MOA. .36" would be a bit over 1/3 MOA @ 100.

You're making this a lot harder that it is, LOL! Measure the spread of the two furthest bullet holes from center to center in INCHES. 1" is 1 MOA meaured at 100 yards! If you are talking a measurement of .36 of a foot, then .36 x 12" = 4.32" at the 600 yard range you shot at!
