Most estimates I've seen are 10% or 15%. Not sure if that's what would be called a small percentage but it sure is a lot of unexploded bombs.

No, that is not comparable to what I'm saying. For starters, I never said an exact copy of your moon rock would make your moon rock less real. It just means there are more of them with equal value....

Well, sure, if we could. But that is why "a rock is about to hit spot X" could be useful info whereas "a rock just missed us by that much" is not really. :)
