It still implies there is a miss involved.
If you aim at a 2-foot-square, and miss it by 2 feet, that's a significant miss.

If you aim a 2-inch-square, and miss it by 2 inches, that probably matters in most situations.

But if you aim at a single hair, and miss it by a hair -- that's a miss so small that everyone including you will call it a hit. But it's still a miss.

Welcome to humanity, where nobody's actually perfect...
