Looking at someones stats. 

Montana: MG 29.6%1 vs 2nd 32.99%

Georgia: MG 33.76 vs 2nd 35.83

Just seems weird.

VS average dmg per gun system?

Let me ask you something, did you mount the range upgrade for the main battery on your ship ?

Because the thing about doing that is your main battery dispersion increases and so you become less likely to hit anything, as your projectiles are spreading all over the map. Then yes, it's very possibly and likely that yours or another person's secondary guns are more accurate than the main battery. The Secret is don't mount the main battery range upgrade ! It's a trap, i tell you ! and causes more frustration, when aim is dead on and you can't hit anything (except at very close range) ! However, so many don't know this secret. There are mods you can buy that will help reduce dispersion and make your (secondary and main battery) guns more accurate, as you get into the higher tiers

The interesting thing is the MB hit rate is actually not bad, around where mine is. So his secondary gunners are doing pretty well. My guess is he has MFCSA for the Monty and GA, and so when they fire, they hit. Probably not doing much damage though.

For Monty yes, but for Georiga, depends on whether he's running IFHE.   I had 2 very similar matches this weekend back to back.  1 in my Mass and 1 in Georgia.  My Mass has IFHE and my Georgia does not.

In both matches I scored around 200 secondary hits (don't recall exact numbers), mostly against CAs and BBs.  (like I said the matches were very similar).  However, the damage done was remarkably different.

Mass - ~200 hits - 24k damage (with IFHE)

Georgia - ~200 hits - 10k damage (without IFHE)

First time I'd had the opportunity (and remembered) to actually compare with/without IFHE.

The larger the caliber, the greater the dispersion.

I don't think that is true...

Montana actually has a fairly low dispersion value compared to some other BBs.

This was not my ship. It was another players.
