Don't worry about where your shots are hitting on the target until you can get consistent groupings. Once you get consistent groupings, then adjust sights to bring the groupings to the desired point of impact.
There's too many holes in that target to really see if you are grouping. Try shooting five shots into each target, then change targets. This will make it easier to see if there are groups. The target shown has both grouping problems and wild shots, suggesting multiple problems (all of which can be corrected).
If you are not grouping and have flying shots, have somebody watch you shoot, or better, have someone take a video of you shooting. Watching the video should help identify the problem.
1. Anticipation of recoil. This is common for someone new to a more powerful caliber or simply shooting more gun than the should. When one anticipates recoil, trigger control and breathing go haywire and shots get pulled.
2. Breathing problems. Deep breath. Align sights with target. Let out half breath. Hold breath, confirm target, squeeze trigger.
3. Sticky trigger or excessively high trigger pull. Clean the gun and check trigger pull.
4. Too much finger on trigger. The tip of the finger pad should be used to squeeze the trigger, not the first finger joint.
