    This is a term which probably comes from target practice or hunting.

    Mark - Target to shoot at

    Not so far off of - close to

    It is close to the target...

    "not so far off the mark"
    Not far = close to
    so "not so far off the mark" means the experiment results were close to the mark.
    in another way : Technical flows were very close to the agreed value.

    hope it helps :)

    Up to now not inaccurate.
