smallest 100 yard group

Well I've shot some pretty small groups with my .222 rem, some that measured .1" and a lot that are .25" or .2", but I have never ever shot a group that went .0" that was untill I got my winchester model 70 in 25-06. I worked up a load with the 117g sbt, and god damn was I surprised. 3 shots, literally 1 hole. 53g H-4831, fed 210, 3.150", w-w case. 3 shots at 100 yards measured .048" according to my calculations. Factory barrel. Scope was a 6-18 leupold target, but is taken off at the moment and on my .270, because at the moment my 25-06 claw extractor is broken. The 1 holer group is the bottom target. To make sure it wasn't a fluke, I loaded up another 3 shot group and it shot a .2" group the next day. Needless to say, no one will ever get this 25-06 from me. Theres nothing done to it besides a trigger job. Its not even glass bedded, or totally free floated. If it aint broke dont fix it kinda thing!

Re: smallest 100 yard group

Thats some nice groupage!

A couple years back I finaly shot a true 1 hole group (3 shot). It took me seven or eight years of trying and hasnt happened again!!

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Nice shooting! I once surprized myself at the range with 3 shot one hole group, testing some Barnes XLC bullets, using a .338 Win mag. I haven't done that since with any of my rifles. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Re: smallest 100 yard group

Wow, that's incredible from a factory rifle. I have shot a three shot group, at 100 yards, with my 6.5x284 that measured .091 and it's a custom rig, Bat, Hart, McMillian, Jewell, Nightforce Scope, you get the point. Anyway, what a great group and rifle. Wildcat.
