I think we may be saying the same thing here. A sloppy gun with crappy ammo will lead to larger groups, but it will be the best possible group for THAT SPECIFIC COMBINATION of gun and ammo since the variance introduced by the shooter is removed. A nice tight gun with match grade ammo should still have the best possible group out of a Ransom Rest compared to someone shooting hand held.

Someone shooting the same combination of gun and ammo should not be able to produce tighter groups than a properly mounted gun on a Ransom Rest. So given your example, the grouping of the .40 S&W firing from a Ransom Rest should still be tighter than a shooter shooting hand held. This is of course given a large enough sample size to eliminate flukes.
