I've found the opposite to be true.

Making adjustments on one shot wastes a lot of ammo. We're not talking benchrest rifles here. A click is 1/4 MOA usually and a lot of guns might be shooting and inch, inch and a half.

In other words, any single shot might be 3 clicks from true group center.

It shouldn't take 30 shots to sight in the way I suggest.

3 shots, adjust. 3 shots, now you know the true adjustment amount from the first try, adjust accordingly, 3 shots to verify. You should be on center. 9 shots total.

I've watches guys waste 9 shots going back and forth making single shot adjustments, say nothing of the final group for verification.

The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
