    It started a few years earlier, at the battle of Agincourt 1415 English archers recovered their arrows from the enemy positions and their bodies! Those arrows don't make themselves!

    There is a simpler solution, I need to get my a**se in gear and shoot properly. The groups with the M2 ammo were more or less round. So the vertical stringing in this case is simply down to the nut...
