I'm left eye dominant and shoot long guns from the right side, never has mattered before so I doubt that's your problem. With a pistol I do fudge over and use the left eye.

Really sounds like something could be loose. Too bad you're having trouble finding someone else to test it. That's the best test. Or you could borrow a scope or red dot but then that wouldn't test your irons.

Thats EXACTLY what i do. I could put a scope on, but id have to buy new rings because none of my others can see over the front post. Is there any way to see if anything is loose?

I went to the range todayto try again with my AR and luckily i got some very definitive results. I shot at 25 yds and agaaun tried both small and large apertures. I found that with the large aperture i always was on paper, but shot rather spiratically. With the small aperture, i had great groups to adjust from and sighted it in perfectly at 25. I really concentrated on my breathing and trigger pull today, and i shot a lot better because of it. This makes it pretty obvious that the problems i hd shooting yesterday were definitely my fault. Thank you for everybodys help. If anybody would like i can post pictures of y targets from today to show how much better things were.
