Surprising 1911 shooting exp
Well was on vaction up north and shot a ton what surprised me was how the 3 different 1911's shot
Springfield 1911 45
1911sc Smith 45
and a Rock Island Armory 38 Super
Range is long verified with lazer range finder 75 yards yes i know its long but still fun to try
Target 20# propane cylinder
So hit and miss with springfield and 1911sc say 3 out of 8 shots hit... now 38 super 8 out of 9 shots everytime all hand loads good handloads to ..
So the scary thought is 1911 loaded 800
Both all decked out good sights bevertail etc etc
Ria crappy gi type sights short tang grip no FL guide rod.
It out shot both the 45s with all there tightened goodies smith and springer sells almost makes me want to carry the 38 super as a carry gun ..
So on to the rest no ftf or fte's on either 45 for round 500 rounds apiece.
38 super 2 ftf's on first mag ever shot put them back in same mag and both ran though ... Tore apart gun later in might noticed forgot to lube it opps..
Only 200 though it that all i had loaded ..
Now up close all were pretty much equal at the 15 yard line and out to 25 yard line beyond that the 38 super shined ...
Anyone else have this exp with a 38 super?
Course i should'nt be surprised 38 sp in my 6 inch trooper was shooting 6 out of 6 at 75 yards.. pics to follow with the brass hanging in air of course
