    The 1st group uses 1 component, A, that is different from groups 2 and 3 which use B component.

    Not exactly a fair test as the first Target was shot a few days prior. That could just be the change in conditions, especially at 1000 yards

    Maybe the shooter just held better?

    I am guessing that you used a sling on the first group and the rest for groups two and three. ;)

    Looks like seating depth to me. Changed bullet lots? Was it windy? Might be able to accept a little more vertical to get rid of some of the horizontal stringing

    Stick with B. Why do each of the last two targets have groupings on each side? Not consecutive shots. Scope adjustment?

    ShotMarker adjustment. Shots 1-4 were shot (at 1,000yards) with a 300 yard target background on my iPhone. I realized it after shot 4 and could then adjust for a left wind pick up. You do realize that 15 shots are in the X ring. I was holding into the 9 ring for wind.
