Re: what is "accurate?"
Good post overthehill, for me accuracy from a hunting stand point means hitting what I am shooting at, where I wanted to hit it. As far as putting holes in paper, I get pretty obsessed in making the best group my gun produce. It took me a couple of years to finally become happy with my load in my groundhog gun. It's producing a 5 shot group under .45 of a inch at a 100yds. Thats about as good as I can make it shoot. Tried many different load combos and that's the best. Now my deer rifle accuracy is 1 inch at 100. I don't even load for it. I'm happy with the factory, cheapo, ammo. It's always worked well for me, and I don't hunt deer enough to really go crazy with making up a load.
