    I believe I can say with a 99.5% confidence level based on a normal distribution and two tailed T test that hand selecting a photo of the tiniest group ever shot seems to be the preferred method.

    It may be....but that does not DISCOUNT....the LAW OF PROBABILITY!!

    Shoot enough groups....and every now and then...a SCREAMER will pop up! But THAT is not probably indicative of the accuracy of the rifle/load!
