Re: How are groups measured in competition?
If i'm right, what you were meaning was do they take the farthest 2 shots or do they take a smallest triangle of 3 possible shots. Even after a year of shooting I still don't know that answer. I would say to ask Darrel Cassel since He's been shooting 1000yd competition since WW1 [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]- I didn't have any groups through the year that 2 shots didn't define so I never knew if they use the smallest circle which would cover all the shots. If they use 2, instead of 3, I would say that the smaller the groups get the more error that will be inherant to the measuring process. I'll have to ask about this. 3 would almost require Autocad to plot though. That sounds like too much trouble to be worth it.
If you have something that you disassemble and reassemble enough times, sooner or later, you'll have two!
