Is this a Sub-Moa group?

I finally was able to shoot beyond 100 yards. I set up some paper at 300 yards and fired a 3 shot group with the best performing 100 yard load.

This is a 7mm Rem. Mag.

The group measured 1.824"

Is this decent? Is this a sub-MOA group? From what I understand anything under 3" at 300 yards is sub-MOA or am I mistaken?

Thanks for any help.

While it would not win any benchrest matches, I would say it was decent grouping.

yes that is very acceptable for a factory rifle and factory ammo. Just ask yourself, will it kill what I am shooting at? That should tell you a lot right there.

As stated above, yes, it's a submoa group. Now, if you wan to know exactly what the number is in MOA, you do the following:

1.824"/ 1.047 / 3 = 0.581 moa as some one else posted.

Very acceptable indeed for long range shooting if the rifle is capable with the shooter of the kind of consistency.

Buckbrush, What kind of rifle,scope and ammo are you using?

Nothing fancy. 110 Savage action, heavy varmint Shilen barrel, 26" long 1:9 twist. Berger VLD 168's, Rifle Basics trigger, B&C Duramax, Leupold VX-II 6-18 with target knobs. Winchester brass, Federal GM215's and H-1000. Bullet is 0.010" off the lands. Really happy with this gun so far considering what I have into it.

Thanks.

Not too fancy :rolleyes:

I guess it depends on what you are comparing to. I was compaing to some of the setups I've seen with high end Nightforces, McMillan stocks, etc. etc. The only new part I stuck on the gun was the barrel. :D The gun is WAY fancy by my terms.

Thanks.
