This is a thread for discussion of the article, Accuracy, A Game Of Strategy , By Jerry Stordahl. Here you can ask questions or make comments about the article.Expectations vary. Few shooters expect a factory rifle to shoot with a custom built gun, but some rifles can come close. It all depends on how accuracy is defined and how the "accuracy game" is being played. Oftentimes, the checkbook says, "Close is good enough."
Once a factory rifle is selected, we eventually discover whether or not it shoots under the magic inch at 100 yards. This criterion for group size is often used to judge normal weight hunting rifle accuracy. If our rifle can do this, we have thrown the dice and moved ahead one square. But not every rifle owner limits his hunting to big game only. Some of us try to hit tiny varmints at the limits of our vision. If the equipment and ammunition produces .5 inch groups or better, riflemen are ahead two spaces in the accuracy game.
