How many foul shots do you take?

Just curious how many shots you take before your groups settle in.My savage 110fp(factory barrel) seems to take 6-8 shots before it shoots consistant.Does this seem like alot?

My factory Tikka 300 seems to take 3 shots, My remington 30-06 seemed to take 5 to 7. Not sure about my savage 22-250

Like britz said, depends on the rifle some will settle down after 1-2 some may take 5 or more. In my experience the better the barrel the less fouling shots are needed.
