The inherent accuracy of a firearm, is dependant on the mechanical tolerances of the firearm components, as pertains to the barrel being in the same exact position during firing. When it comes to compound archery, what makes one bow inherantly more accurate than another. You cannot readily adjust the mechanical part of a firearm, to "tune" it and affect the accuracy. A bow, you can. What makes a competition bow, more accurate than a lower end (under $500) hunting bow, if both bows are perfectly tuned? Does the competition bow, simply have more "forgiveness" during the shot, to forgive shooter errors, built into the design of the bow? If a high end competition bow was mounted in a rest, and mechanically shot the same every time, and shoots in the same arrow hole every time, at 50 meters, can a lower end (under $500) hunting bow, be chucked into the same fixed rest, mechanically shot the same every time, and can it attain the same accuracy of the high end competition bow?
