Words mean things, be careful especially with the difference between inches and MOA.
In inches I agree that its impossible for a rifle to shot 1" @ 200 and less than 1" at any greater distance.
However, what Michael says regarding MOA is true and is observed quite frequently.
I have a rifle that will shoot 1/4 MOA @ 200 and at 1000 on a perfect day but ONLY on perfect days. (that would be days without wind AND mirage and I'm in the Zone
