I have been reading posts concerning barrel cool down. Several members when trying for groups do it differently, some let the barrel cool down and some shoot fowler shots. I personally shoot 2 fowler shots then I commence to shooting my groups. I understand that everyday befor climbimg into my stand I don't shoot fowlers which brings up my question has anyone ever tried to shoot one shot per day at say 100 or 200 yards for 4 or 5 days just to see what their group would look like? Sounds crazy but I thought it would be interesting to see the outcome I would have done this myself already and then shared the results but I don't have access at my residence to do such a thing.

I the last time I did that was with my Eddystone (peep sight.) The 3 shot group was 6 3/8" at 300 yards.
I usually only shoot one shot a day from one of my rifles unless I am developing a load. Today it was 200 yards with the, (peep sighted,) Springfield; I nicked the 12oz bottle... It still exploded though.
"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."-- Samuel Adams
Depends completely on the rifle----mine move Very Little if any and that condition varies from clean to fouled, hot or cold. The Kriegers and Broughtons just do not move much on any of the rifles I own.
Factory tubes all bets are off---- when I used to shoot factory tubes I always left the tube fouled after checking zero for the season.
