    When shooting a 338 lapua, what would be a good group size at 1000 yards? Thanks

    10" would be sub MOA. I think that would be good.

    i would think anywher around 1/2 moa to 3/4 moa, so 5-8 inches would be a great group

    "Good" is extremely relative to the shooter, weapon/equipment, and conditions.

    Anything under 1 MOA is good enough to get the job done 99% of the time.

    Like Wildrose said. It's all relative.

    Are you trying to compete in IBS, or F-Class?

    Are you hunting Elk, Whitetail, Groundhogs?

    Or, are you just plinking?

    Consistent MOA at 1k is pretty good unless you're competing.

    Feenix,

    What camera did you use to get that kind of closeup?

    Sorry but I borrowed the footage! (Jeff) BROZ should be able to help, he was the spotter ... maybe he'll chime in.

    Joe Starnes (one of the gunsmiths I go to) was the man behind the trigger, not me. My bad, I should have made that clear. I am nowhere near Jeff's and Joe's capabilities, esp. that small of a target ... perhaps some day.
