Personally, I'd say that the groups at 500 yards would extropolate to NO MORE than half of the equivalent at 25 yards, and I think that's VERY optimistic. I don't know a single person with a RIFLE that can maintain perfect mathematical groups as distances exceed about 250 yards. Yes, there are guys and guns that can do it, a lot of them. Most people can not, and with a rifle. Desertscout1 is probably an excellent shot with a handgun. Even so, to expect pure linear growth of the groups at those distances is a pretty unreasonable best case scenario.

Desertscout1, shoot that Glock at 25 and show us the groups. I bet you can do under 2 inches.
