I read an article the other day about load development. The writer suggested a neat trick. When putting up your target, place a second target 100% aligned underneath your target.
Now shoot your 3 shot or 5 shot grouping as per usual. Yes, allways that 1 flyer that you called!!!
Now go home, happy that you shot the great group with 1 called flyer. Keep the second target.
Next time you go back to the range, place this same second target underneath your new target, again 100% aligned. Fire away, and call all the flyers you want.
After repeating this process a couple of times, you end up with your rifle's (or your own) real capabilties. Not the 3 shot bughole with one called flyer, but a 1,5 or 2 inch ragged hole on the target that was allways behind your current target.
 
Neat I thought.

Where's the fun in that: knowing I suck rather than occasionally getting lucky and bragging about it?

Really... I shot a .764inch 3 round group at 500yards with my 7mmSTW.  I may not shoot that rifle again for 2 or 3 years, BUT I STILL HAVE THE TARGET...

Boy, that will keep you honest. I might have to try it...painful as it may be over time.
