    3-rd group vs. 5-rd group vs. 9-rd groups

    Guys, I just released a new video to talk about a topic that i've frequently discussed amongst my friends.
    Do you guys shoot 3-shot groups/ 5-shot groups or 9-shot groups for accuracy testing??

    I sight in a new rifle/sight with 3 shot groups(as taught to me by the Army) then verify with 5 shot groups.

    Nice video Henry, I've enjoyed the past couple. I usually do 5 rounds if I'm shooting for groups. None other than for the cost of ammo I use for that type of shooting (sighting in for varmints).

    What do you use for video equipment?

    iPhones, a GoPro Hero2 that I got during deployment and a Canon 7D MKII
    This usually surprises some friends: I usually shoot videos on public ranges with iPhones because I don't like leaving my expensive DSLRs laying around during ceasefires. Down range targets are usually shot with GoPros, but rarely i will leave a phone on a small tripod out there.

    I use 3 round groups for initial sight in, and will verify my zero with a 5 round group. For accuracy I slow(ish) fire a 10 round group starting with a cold bore and ending with a warm bore. I don't let the barrel get "hot" when shooting for zero or group.
