My .22-250 is one spooky rifle. The hotter the load the tigher the groups seem to get.
I agree with the overall topic though... and I'll admit to being a little guilty of it. Not that I havent gotten .25" groups with my .22-250 (I have twice), but CONSISTANTLY being able to do it... well now thats another thing. I know the rifle can do it but more often than not its me the shooter who introduces the error.
I once with people watching, shot a .6" 3 shot group with my .50 cal Muzzleloader... I have as of yet, to even come close to that kind of accuracy with it since then. On average I shoot 2" groups and thats plenty good for a frontstuffer. When people ask me "how good does that gun shoot?" well I usually say 2" but I have told people about the .6 group I shot
Personally Gil, I think you could start making some spare $$$ by saying "I got $50 on me, prove it"
Just be careful though... I lost a crisp $100 bill when I was 14 to my dad who was bragging about tight groups... I said "prove it" and I'll be damned if that old guy didnt just prove it.
