    My 9mm carbine isn't scoped and I need to hold over about 42" at 200 yds (going from memory here). How many clicks (or how much holdover) do you need for 200-400 yds?

    Max 9mm Carbine range

    Using my sub 2000 with qual rail forend and a 3x9 compact P4 reticle scope , I cn keep most shots in a 10" group at 200 yrds.

    This is using the black bullets from precision bullets. its a 147 gr with 5.3 of Power Pistol and OAL of 1.115. Unique powder did not produce the same accuracy. FMJ 125's produced a slightly better group . I did get a few flyers with the 147's and suspected a few tumblers by the looks of a few holes - with Unique powder.

    I will be trying a slighty lower charge to get the velisity down a bit > I did not chono these 147's but I can hear the sonic crack down range so i know they are breaking 1,100 fps.
