Grouping at 200 yards

I'd like to know what would be considered good grouping at 200 yards. This way I'll know where I stand.

Re: Grouping at 200 yards

good group is 2 inch @200=1 inch @100
great group is 1 inch @200 =.5 inch @100

Re: Grouping at 200 yards

I always verify good groups at 100 yds at longer ranges ; just see it it a fluke or not. This is the way my SAKO 75 300 RUM groups at 300 yds.
200 gr Accubonds at 3148 with RL 25. Group is .675" @300 yds.

Re: Grouping at 200 yards

When all this grouping is calculated, would this be from a bench rest? I'm trying to see how it should be from a real on the field situation. Like lying down, sitting on the ground, leaning on an atv or snowmobile etc. Note that these situations would always be target practice. I also know that they couldn't be as precise as a benchrest either cause of stability.
