Groups have always been controversial and opinions range from not nessary to never good enough.
The main reason some place so much emphasis on group size, it tells them what the rifle is capable
of under perfict conditions and if no mistakes are made by the shooter. It does not however
guarantee perfict hits every time.
A rifle that is capable of 1/4 MOA eliminates any excuses that I may have for less than a perfict
shot placement And places all of the burden on me to perform at a higher level.
Also a good group does not mean that you your rifle and ammo can duplicate that "Best Group"
but it does mean that the rifle is capable of it from time to time with every thing correct and
the shooter at the top of his game.
For the long range hunter/shooter it proves consistency and gives him confidence to take an otherwise
Is group size for every one? Probably not. but for some that never stop trying to improve, it
is a benchmark that every thing related to accuracy and consistency is based on.
