My smallest 3 shot group

I was out testing some rifles a few weeks ago and had to rezero my 260 Rem after loaning it out. I grabbed the rifle up and with 200+ rounds through it without cleaning fired this 3 shot group at 100 yards. This is officially my best 3 shot group at 100 yards. While I was pleased with this I was not suprised too much as this is the same rifle I had shot a .287" 3 shot group with at 300 yards with a few years ago and won the USPSA Precision Rifle Nationals with a while back. As you can see it might actually measure a little smaller but I like to error to the side of caution. My whole point is not about how cool my rifle was that day but to talk about confidence. I have not changed the zero in years and wouldn't have except for loaning it out. I know I can count on it to shoot the same speed, same group, and same drop no matter what, cleaned, fouled, couple of hundred rounds since the last cleaning etc. I love my 338 Edges but this is the last rifle I would part with.

    You sure a 300 grain SMK didn't squeak through there?
