From reading the posts on here, other forums, my own experience and even manufacturers' blurb it seems that the accuracy available to the shooter using fairly modest kit is increasing to the point that it is hard to distinguish the results using the traditional 100 yard target yardstick.
Most days someone will talk about the minuscule size of their group and the impact of the load that they are developing, but I find myself thinking 'Why?'. Don't get me wrong - I am definitely not one of the 'it'll do' guys. I want my rifle and shooting to be as accurate as possible, but I am finding that I am a lot more interested in what happens further out exposing meaningful differences between the alternative rounds and the weaknesses in my shooting technique. Does a difference of a few millimetres matter at relatively close ranges really matter?
So, I am wondering..... do we need a new metric.
