target was about 45 feet or so away, ammo was winchester 180 grain hollow points (if memory serves me correctly) it was the cheapest ammo they had there, i bought it specifically just to get the range sweat going that was the last 150 on that target

How long have you been shooting....maybe I misread something but I thought you said you were a bit of a newbie to shooting....because that is amazing shooting at 45 ft with a new gun

well my brother was a sniper in the marine corp for 8 years so he was there to help guide me you should have seen the first target though it looked ugly lol but i was proud enough of that on to post it

i really do appreciate the help you guys give as well, if any one has some info on what the deal was with the slide sticking and the ammo not loading right that would be appreciated as well, thanks guys

EDIT: i had my dad measure the distance for me and it was only 35 feet not 45, i was off by 10 sorry

Don't forget, Dr., those DW's shoot themselves. Especially when there is a feed problem. Feed problems help with the recoil anticipation and aid in sight alignment and acquisition. That way, you can put 150 rds thru a 2" hole.

i didnt even take a picture of it thats how bad it was, it had some good groupings in it but my brother told me i was looking at my target and not my sights so when i put a new target up and used his advice, well it came together pretty good.
