What is the correct way to measure a group of shots? Do you measure from the center of the farthest shots and subtract the cal.?
Thanks for the help.:33:

I've always measured from center to center of the two furthest apart shots, no subtraction necessary.

If you like technology...

It is free and lets you save your targets with measures, dates, loads, etc.

Or just use the method you have already mentioned.

You could measure from the outer edge of the further shots and subtract the caliber, or measure from center to center of the furthest shots as slick said. The latter method is simpler and likely more precise.

Easy Button:
Open your caliper to the caliber size (.224/.308) and re-zero it. Now measure from the outside edges and that's your group size.

Measure from the inside of one hole to the outside of the furthest hole.

Thanks to everyone for responding to this.
So a 1.832" group at 300 yrds would be equivelent to .58 MOA?
1.832/3/1.05" per MOA= .58
