 Clausewitz was a vulgar fool. Besides, we weren't talking about war either.
 That's a loaded question (no pun intended). It depends on a lot of factors like ammo quality, environmental conditions like wind, what the shooter has practiced on, etc. You can have a world class shotgun shooter who can't shoot a rifle for anything, for instance. If we are talking about a stock 10/22, a rudimentary scope, decent ammo, and decent conditions outside, I might be able to shave 1/2 an inch off of those groups. Might even be able to get it down to sub MOA on a...

In fact, the "average" 5.56 was not the subject of any test that has given results like that. For all you know he, or someone else reading this, goes out and buys a box of FMJ 5.56 M855 to defend his home with and ends up...
 This.
 No arguing was being done. Just let it be.
Haha, well yeah, you can't really have Thanksgiving without Indians. None of those in the commonwealth. Except for curry Indians I suppose. On a completely different topic, I just had Indian food. Love me some dang Masala.
