Buckmark / Kimber 10mm
I recently scoped my Buckmark and took it out to sight in today.
Scope is a 2-6x32 Bushnell Elite sitting on Burris Signature Zee high rings.
Zeroed scope at 25 yds., and then moved target out to 50 yards and sprayed bullets!
I was sitting in the bed of my truck, shooting off a rest on the bed rail. Using Federal 40 gr. Automatch, no malfunctions at all! Just a very fun gun to shoot! :D

Then I shot the Kimber Eclipse 10 mm, Remington UMC 180 gr. target loads.
First magazine was in the money at 7 yds. :), so I moved it out to 20 yds. and.............crap! I was all over the paper:( Oh well, I guess on the paper is better than not!
I just can't seem to make the transition to shooting beyond 10 yds.
Gun failed to feed a couple times with the factory mag., I switched to the 9 round Tripp Cobramag, and had no more issues!
Fun day at the range though, need more practice, practice, practice with the 10mm.

Good shooting! The next time you try distance, cut the target down to size so it is a little larger than the front sight. Center the front sight and make a mental reference on how the target looks.
Keep the same image each time you pull the trigger.
A large background allows for too much variance.

Thank's for the advice dan f.
Seems like with all of my guns I end up shooting a little low and to the left. :confused:
Same pattern with my scoped rifles, I can usually hit good to 100 yds., and after that they also drop low and left.
The handguns just frustrate the crap out of me cause I try and compensate, and end up all over the place.
Oh well, I'll try your tip, and go out again next weekend.:)
