That's what I was getting at for the difference in lock times between .00250 and .00246 second and how far that deer would move at top speed. Doesn't matter if that primer was .002" deeper either; that .0004 second difference still applies and the animal would move just as far in that length of time.
And picking apart someone's reasoning is how their errors are exposed. It'll also expose why they're correct in their reasoning; if they are correct.
Since you are rather dense and I hopped back on to check out Joe's post, I'll 'splain it to you in a way a kindergardener could understand.
One inch variation on its own wouldn't amount to a hill of beans. Add 4 inches for your average group size and another 6 inches because you have the shakes, not to mention an inch or two because you have piss poor optics that aren't dialing out the parallax well, and you get pretty hopeless on boiler rooming a critter in a hurry. Even worse if you have a varying wind or elevation change. Not to mention the dang thing stopping as I let the shot fly, like happened at the last running mule deer I shot at 400 yards; still got him though.
If you can cut out even a bit of your maximum dispersion, would you do it??
By the way, thanks for the insight on the ignore list, and how do you do it??-- update...I think I've got it...
