    accurate rifles

    so im off work sick and decide to watch some you tube clips on gun stuff because ive never done it before. im amazed at what the guys in the us think an accurate rifle is they stand about 10 paces away from some cans and shoot at them with a high powered rifle and manage to hit them and think its got good accuracy the funniest one was a guy with a 1022 that shot a 2 inch group at 40 yards and thought it was really good

    True. Mind you I've seen some hunters who could barely hit the ground in front of them

    Better not throw stones remember we have some youtube idiots as well, just there are not many of us in general. In my experience Americans come in all types, many are more like us (Kiwis) than most other cultures.

    I would put money on the average american hunter being a better shot than the average NZ hunter.
    The american practices all year, and hunts once.
    The NZer hunts all year, and practices once.

    Spend a bit of time at any range in NZ and I think you will have a new appreciation of rifle accuracy, more to the point joe hunters ability.

    Most guys spend their time shooting off benches at the range I go to, almost all the others are shooting off a bi pod

    I get a few strange looks when shooting clays at 50M, be surprising how many wouldn't be able to hit a clay at 50m off hand.

    Anyway my 2cents, I think I am with Thar on this one

    Cheers

    That's pretty normal for a ruger ......

    So many sit on a concrete bench and fire while sitting with bipods etc, I wonder I dont call that practice. Out in the real wild far more so, I'd take the opposite view myself.

    I was refreshed when shooting beside Jas in Dannevirke. Pulls out the pack at 300 and nails the gong each shot. Nothing wrong with a bi pod but real hunting situations where they are usefull are few.
