    100 yards

    Hit the range again this morning (burning use/lose leave) and decided to try the 10 mm XD OSP at 100 yards, resting on my elbows, after slightly adjusting the red dot. 15 shots measured 9.5" across. I should try completely off hand sometime too.

    The main goal this morning was honing in on a muzzleloader hunting load. 3 shots at 100 yards measured 0.8" with 300 gr 45 cal Hornady XTPs. Next trips will be to see how consistent this load is, and zero the scope. Never mind the .380 holes on that target, was playing around with the pocket gun while waiting between muzzleloader shots for the barrel to cool, and a few shots jumped targets (or I forgot which I was aiming at...). (Not sure why image was sideways; trying again.)

    Surely you didn’t do that with a handgun:)

    Great shooting by the way; with all of them.

    Thanks, guys.

    After the thrash last year with getting warranty service on a muzzleloader that just wouldn't shoot well it's nice to find a sub-MOA load within the first two dozen shots from the replacement gun.

    Amazing how perfectly spaced the shots down the sides are on the silhouette target.

    Minute of BG at 100 yards with a pistol? I'm NOT volunteering to stand in as a target for you!
    Those 380 holes fired from 100 yards too? That's some nice shooting if they were.

    The 300gr XTP does shoot nice from my CVA Optima. You are looking pretty good with those 3 shots. Pretty close to where I'd want my shots to land at 100 yards.
