I often hear if it's not a five shot group it's just a string .
What if your gun only holds 4 rounds ? is a 4 shot group good enough ?
What about those guns that only hold 3 rounds or even 1 do you just keep loading till you hit five ?
How long do you get to shoot this group ?
Can you let the barrel cool a bit then finish . i.e. shoot 3 let it cool down a little then shoot the last 2 .
I alway thought you must shoot them all in a row . Maybe not fast but lets say 5 shots in 20 to 25 sec for it to count as a group .
I also don't think it's fare to ask a gun to do something it was never designed to do . A light weight sporter barrel was not designed to shoot 5 shoots rather quickly . As the barrel heats up the 4th and 5th shots are bound to open up a bit .
These target here tell me my ruger American is a sub MOA rifle . Who says yes and why , who says no and why . They were shot on different days at different times with different lot # ammo . Total time for all three shot , no more then 30 sec
