Shooting tight groups will show yours and the guns capability, how well the pellets are suited etc.
Being consistently capable of putting the pellet in the right place in a variety of shooting positions is where the target rifle has a benefit. Nearly all target rifles if not all have a cheek piece top that is inline with the barrel bore. Many fixed stocks or "normal" rifles have hugely shaped cheek pieces to "look good" The shaped stock will not give a consistent eye position in a multitude of shooting positions so will be out performed by the target rifle.
Manufacturers putting more emphasis on what they think looks good than actual ergonomics is something I have tried to address but the people who make the decisions don't understand as they are not shooters.
HFT, for people with only 2 buttucks!
