    Don’t know all the ins-and-outs of bench rest but I thought this was impressive enough to share

    Anyone who has ever seriously studied a 1000 yard target through a riflescope knows how unbelievable that score is. I will admit to having been away from the game for many years - I had no idea that something like the .300 WSM played any role.

    A 10 shot group under 3 inches is pending world record. This additional record of 100 points with 10X will stand forever.

    Super shooting. Congratulations.

    10 shoot groups mean a lot of time for wind to change, barrel heat level to change etc.

    Many of the 1,000 yard clubs shoot 5 round groups and the 5 round record is under 1.5" in both the IBS and NBRSA sanctioning bodies.

    When we look at old articles and feel smart because our groups are smaller, we are not accounting for the old timers' habit of shooting ten shot groups. Sure, bullets and barrels are better, but we are also shooting half as many of them. Or less; I see a lot of brag targets with three shots.
