It isn't as consistent as we would like it to be after some unfortunate events but yea. Work in progress still, but we believe/hope we can cement it to <2 cm every time. How do you think scores like that would fare in competition?

You shouldnt need to test every 10cm mark. Every 50cm should be plenty sufficient and obtain you the same amount of accuracy by using a linear regression to find marks in between

Also, asking siri is actually ingenious, even though it's hilarious at the same time.

the closer one gives us more consistency issues than the farther one. The farther one is more an issue w/alignment (we dont use a rifle scope, we just line up some stuff)
