It’s a common misnomer for shooters to refer to small groups as more accurate. In fact, small groups have nothing to do with accuracy. A small group is demonstrating great precision.
Examples of accuracy and precision
Most aspects of precision have to do with the quality and repeatability of your rifle and ammunition. Accuracy is accomplished primarily by your sighting system, and knowing what corrections to apply for windage and elevation to compensate for wind and drop.
Real success at long range shooting is achieved when you master both accuracy and precision. The following articles in the “BC, Accuracy, and Precision” series will discuss the role of BC (Ballistic Coefficient) in understanding the trade-offs, and achieving the best results in your application.
