Re: Whats the problem?

Multiple groups were shot with this load, it was consistently good. This ended up being shooter error. He was not getting a consistant cheek weld.

    Honest to God I know people who only shoot a 3 shot group Once just so they say they have a small group and have the target to prove it lol!! About 90% of the time people could not repeat that feat ever. Luck is a big player in the 3 shot group crowd esp with factory rifles. When I am developing a load for a competition rifle I shoot five shot groups then narrow those down to 2 five shot groups then the final gets 3 five shot groups. More than once the 2 five shot groups did not continue down the same path as the first 5 shot group.

    Sporters only get the first 5 shot group then the 2 five shot groups to confirm --- call it a day after that.

    Okay, so you have your answer.

    True. I smile and "Wow" a bit and go on. No point in saying it's a wallet group simply because it's so unusual!
