When I'm asked if a rifle is "accurate," I have no idea what that means. If you're going to use the Model 10 as a short-range deer-dumper it's accurate if it shoots 2-inch groups at 100 yards, because that's more than enough to do the job. If you'd like to take it to F-Class 600-yard rifle matches and shoot it in the Tactical Class, it better put five shots in ½-inch or less at 100 yards if you wish to avoid being humiliated, because that's what's required.
So "accurate" is relative. Indeed, when you think about it, the whole concept of gun "testing" is as full of shuck and jive as Obamacare. First, there is the statistical problem. Gun tests are based on someone like me getting one gun and seeing how well it shoots but, as the SEALs say, "One is nothing." In order to have any kind of statistical validity, I would probably have to shoot 10 (or 20, or 50) different rifles of the same model and caliber, made days or weeks apart. This is because all rifles are individuals, and serial number 1999834 may be a marvel while 1999835 might be good only for propping open a door.
