Looks like you and northern devout shooters are the exception! SORRY if I offended you as my observations were not meant to inflamatory.
In short, hunters living in vast wide-open areas may have a different opinion as to what constitutes an accurate shooting rifle. Dedicated reloaders / bench shoots have one definition, occasional range shooters usually broaden their expectations, and the once or twice a year hunter has an much more generous definition.
I too am a picky shooter, and when I see a fly on the target, I want the bullet to hit it. And when I see a deer at 250 yards, I want the bullet to hit the 2:00 position of his shoulder (well 1" above and 1" behind), but when teaching folks long-range marksmanship lessons, my expectations expand to the broad views of the occasional hunter living in vast open areas.
An accurate rifle doesn't make an accurate shooter and an accurate shooter can do amazing things with most rifles considered to be average.
It wasn't that long ago that open-range hunters / farmers depended on the 30-30 rifle to put food on the table. Most often, the dad would put a milk bucket on a log 50 yards away, and if his son could hit the 10" X 15" bucket, he was accurate enough to go hunting.
Keep smiling and happy hunting this fall.
