Is this a Sub-Moa group?

I finally was able to shoot beyond 100 yards. I set up some paper at 300 yards and fired a 3 shot group with the best performing 100 yard load.

This is a 7mm Rem. Mag.

The group measured 1.824"

Is this decent? Is this a sub-MOA group? From what I understand anything under 3" at 300 yards is sub-MOA or am I mistaken?

Thanks for any help.

Yes that is a sub MOA group. And yes you are correct about 3'' being one MOA @ 300, same as 4'' @ 400, 5" @ 500 etc..

While it would not win any benchrest matches, I would say it was decent grouping.

yes that is very acceptable for a factory rifle and factory ammo. Just ask yourself, will it kill what I am shooting at? That should tell you a lot right there.

That is 0.58 MOA @ 300 yds, I would be happy with that.
