I usually only shoot three shot groups now. I used to shoot 5 shot groups but with a thin contoured barrel, the groups will generally open up when the thinner barrels start to heat up. Three shot groups will tell you enough about how well your rifle is shooting, and for purposes of hunting, the animal will hopefully be down before you have to shoot three shots anyhow.
Not sure if this helps you or not. But my groups open up after three shots also with my lightweight hunting rigs. If you're grouping good for the first three shots then I'd say you're in pretty good shape.
