Two respectable groups: The 1st, measuring .245 inches, but not yet positioned on the bullseye by proper adjustment of the sights. The second, after the sights have been adjusted slightly down and to the left.
Group - A set of holes in a target left by a succession of bullets fired from the same rifle or handgun, using the same ammunition and sight setting. Fired to determine (within the limits of one's marksmanship ability---often aided by shooting from a stable rest) the inherent accuracy of the rifle/ammunition combination---and to aid in the proper adjustment of the sights. Measured by the distance, on center, of the two widest-disbursed holes.
