Silver dollar sized groups...or better. Occasional flyers...operator error.Hey at 25 yards bench rest with iron sights what kind of accuracy are you guys getting?
Nice shooting Jinkster!Yesterday...30 shots...one mag of 15 loaded with 115gr and one mag of 15 loaded with 124gr...stock iron sights...offhand...25yds...
outside of one flier from re-seating my cheek on the pipe?...I think the other 29rds could be covered with a pack of marlboro reds.
I might also note that I'm a diabetic who just suffered a stroke 9 months ago where my fine motor skills aren't exactly what they used to be but I'm getting there....at least I'm still living my life and enjoying it! LOL!'
But I say the SUB2000 is a dandy shooter for what it is...rats at 25yds don't stand a prayer and from a folding, pipe stocked, 16" barreled 9mm auto carbine?... I think that's real decent accuracy.
I shot the above group using a front rest. But I have claimed for years this little guy is 1 gallon milk jug accurate at 100 yards. And that was with the old 8 MOA wide blade front sight. You should be looking at 5" at 100 yards, but not at 25. It may be your ammo, it may be your hold/cheek weld, or it may be the trigger is still too stiff.Ok thanks. I'm all over the place right now. Gonna try some different ammo but right now I guess I'm at least 5" and all over. Seem I got er running pretty well just not consistent accuracy.
That's a good place to start.... Could be my load. I worked up some different ones tonight and will try them in the next day or so.
Lighter bullets with slower powders have worked well for my Sub-2000. Gen 2.... Where would you start with the 2000?
Just out of curiously, have you tried factory loads? I noticed in your post that you reload.Thanks again.
Ha yeah practice makes better for sure. It very well may be that. I have had this thing for years but never shot it much. Had stove pipe issues and lost interest. I have been playing with it lately and have solved the stove pipe,I hope. I shot about 150 rounds the other day with no problems. I did put a Red Lion front sight on it so it should be a bit better than that crapy sight it came with. I do notice my brass comes out pretty dirty. Not sure if that is an indication of a problem or not. I may not be the best shot in the world but I'm better than 5" at 25yards. LOL I'll figure it out. Could be my load. I worked up some different ones tonight and will try them in the next day or so.
Amen. Before you start changing components, adding accessories, and using custom ammo, you should shoot a new firearm through the break-in period completely stock and using whatever factory ammo gives the best results. Then, when you make changes (only one at a time please), you have a baseline to work from.Just out of curiously, have you tried factory loads? I noticed in your post that you reload.
Amen!Accuracy when it comes to MY subbie....if I can make a soda can dance at 25 yards, I'm a very happy camper.
Minute of paper plate at 50 yards makes me sing like a birdie.
If I can put shots consistently on a 16"x16" paper target at 75 yards...I can take a deer with it. What more could I ask for from a little pistol caliber, folding carbine?
And it fits in the saddlebag on my bike.
