I always allow a little tolerance for shot placement since my rifle will not place 10 shots  in a .001" group.

I have shot a few in the 1's and a bit more in the 2's and quite a few in 3's. Do I think my rifle is capable of doing better the answer is yes indeed. Am I as capable as my rifle that has yet to be consistently done. But it is also no fault to my rifle BobZ it all falls back on me.

10 shots at 200 in the 1s and 2s? That's pretty good.  Roll Eyes

Ballards may be weaker,
but they sure are neater!

The only way to truly determine if a particular rifle is capable of one hole groups is to find an indoor 200 yd. range, and test it in a machine rest with no wind, or other external input that can affect the bullet's flight.
Even a 100 yd. indoor range would give some idea, but not sure if it would transpose into a 200 yd. result?

I've shot quite a few one hole groups, 8 to 10 shots are 200 with my .32-40, .33-47 and .45-100, but no where near the .1s or .2s.   I very seldom shoot 5 because all the matches are 10 shots. Even did one with 12 shots offhand with a .54 flinter at 50 yards.  Ah, those were the days  Grin  We do have better conditions at Tacoma than most ranges ever see.

BobZ I should have been more clear they were 5 shot groups at a 100 not at 2. The best 10 shot group at 100 to date was in a CBA group match and in the upper 4's. Best 5 shot groups at 200 in practice only as we don't hold group matches at 200 have been in the 5's with the 28-35 not the 32-40. My 25 - 10 shot 200yd. group average shot over several months of both hot, cold and various range conditions. A test for long term day in and day out consistency purposes only ended up at 1.42 and also shot with the 28-35.

The thing about calling offhand shots that amazed Ol' Shelton when he was spotting for me back in the late 80s and 90s was  my accurate calling  the score and clock position.  Once in a while I'd be a point or two off.   

I hate to admit it but I was more amazed than he was  Cheesy  Good gusser, eh?  Roll Eyes
