Entertaining video, however I do wonder about the point being made. I do agree that "one shot isn't a group", however trying to use computer software to determine the poi didn't seem to work any better for the shooter in the vid the Chairgun program worked for me! LOL……after the first 5 shot group I would have adjusted my scope turrets to center the rather large 25 yard group (similar to the 25 yard groups I got with SuperMags). I certainly wouldn't be shooting a 10 shot and a 30 shot group proving that the computer info was rather useless. A few 5 shot groups using "scope turret adjustments" would have centered those sloppy groups on the aim point well before shooting a "30 shot group" regardless of the "computer data". Hummm……come to think of it, shooting the 30 shot group did turn the "5 shot pattern" into a gigantic "30 shot group" once you tossed out the 7 shot group on the left and 2 shot group under the 21 shot "one hole group".

A few comments……………

1. I shot RWS SuperMags years ago from my .177 R9 and accuracy started "going south" at 25 yards.

2. Years ago I tried to use ChairGun to predict my poi based on velocity and didn't find the data matched this target shot "real time". Perhaps my "Chairgun failure" was simply "bad input" but I found it easier and better to simply shoot groups than trying to get Chairgun to match "real world"……..

3. The claim that a "three shot group isn't a group" probably depends on the shooter and the equipment. When I first sold a used .177 Beeman R9 to my brother he used "3 shot powder burner groups" because that was what he was familiar with. Here are two 50 yard 3 shot groups done at one shooting session and I do suspect that two 3 shot groups are at least as good as one 5 shot group……….
