    Nice one :) Here is my 100yd group of the day (yesterday), OK so I cheated and used handloads and a Tikka but a 1/12th MOA .346" (outside diamiter) group is still pretty impressive for a guy with nerve damage and a shoestring shooting budget.

    I shot mine using my stock Tikka T3 Stainless wearing a Nikon Prostaff 3x9 BDC (hunting scope) and my own handloaded 6.5x55 129gr SST over 45.5gr of RL19, PPU brass and a Rem Primer loaded to 3.098" that was my first group with that experimental load, but with as good as it shot it won't be my last :D Only my Savage ever shot any tighter then that, it never made more then one hole until you took it out to the 200yd target.

    Nice!

    My 13 year old son recently did this. A .900" group (with the flyer) would have been .500" without using CCI Blazer in a TRR SR. We have been testing ammo and the latest batch worked as good as Green Tag or Tenex.

    ^ Very nice! Teaching them to shoot right while they are young will prevent stubborn bad habits when they get older. I know many grown men who think they know it all that cannot shoot near as well as your 13 year old.

    Kachok: Nice shooting. I don't know what "outside diameter" means, relative to group size, but if it's center-to-center of the most distant shots, then that's some good shooting. I do know that .3+ isn't 1/12 m.o.a., if I'm reading you right. It's more like 1/3 m.o.a.

    Mine was last Sunday and I don't feel like snapping and uploading a picture, but I was pretty happy with 10 shots into 1.9" in under 90 seconds from a standing position with front rest using a 16" AR-10A2 and 150 gr. Hornadys in military brass of all different headstamps.

    Simple, you measure bullet impacts center to center, if the outside diameter is .346" and the bullets diamiter is .264" that means the bullet tips impacted within .082" of each other which is just under 1/12th of an inch. You cannot measure accuracy by outside diameter alone or super small calibers are more accurate by default, center to center measurement is just more accurate. Think about it is it impossible for a 50 cal to shoot any tighter then 1/2 MOA even if it is shooting a one smooth hole group? To call that 1/2 MOA is not a fair representation of it's accuracy.

    You measure center to center..Center to center of a .50 caliber is zero.Same as a .22,center to center is zero.Provided it is a perfectly smooth hole in one....LOL.

    What range was that MachIVshooter? 1.9" from standing is hella good shooting.

    118 yards. That's not off-hand, though. The front of the rifle was rested, as was my support elbow. My off-hand groups are about 3 times that size.

    10 shots in 90 seconds under 2" from over a 100 yards with an auto is pretty impressive even off a bench. I need to get an automatic rifle, I am torn between a 6.5 Grendel AR15 and an AR10 in 260 Rem, yeah I am a proud member of the 6.5mm cult :D even though I use .30 cals 7mms and my 270 WSM too.

    Thanks for the clarification. I'm keenly aware that groups are measured center-to-center, just never heard anybody talk about "outside diameter." I understand what you're saying, and that, indeed, is 1/12 m.o.a.!! Great shooting! I would have said that you'd measured the distance between the outside tangents of the outside shots and subtracted the bullet's diameter. ;)

    I love CZ rifles I have the 452 lux (22lr) and it'll hit golf balls at 100yds open sight from the bench.

    I was just shooting my AR15 the other day. 16" barrel DPMS from sandbag rest. I was hitting a 4" plate at will at 200 yards. The ammo was bulk .223.

    The best I ever did with iron sights was hitting 10 consecutive silhouette headshots at 300 yards with my M16, but that was before my accident, I highly doubt I could do that now.

    I thought this topic was about .22 LR and 100 yards?
