Although the scoring machines can be electronic, and you can get trace kit like Scatt which enables you to train indoors, good old batch selection is done by shooting groups, statistically analysing that, and selecting other batches that likely to produce similar or better results, until the entire production line's output is exhausted.

Generally, from the England team shooter i've worked with, they dial in till their hitting 10s... that's about it.
I think you could be wrong Rob, they all have this for a start:

Not true, not sheltered and in the wind and with Scatt like systems with readings for the wind so you could argue they have everything we have missing.
