Steveo would say that he could have put all shots through the same hole at 1000 yards.

Wow, makes me think about my dad. We lost him last April to a stroke at the age of 90. He was in Patton's army. He was wounded by a German grenade and taken prisoner in September, just before the Battle of the Bulge. Was reported KIA/MIA, had a funeral back home for him and everything, still have the newspaper clippings, guest book, etc. His family didn't find out until January he was still alive.
