Been traveling and busy and haven't kept up with the forum lately. But, I went shooting in the desert with some friends the other day and, amongst other firearms, took my wife's R380. It was shooting higher than I liked.
So, I took it to a proper range yesterday and benched it up. With PNC and Hornady Critical Defense it shoots 2 1/4 inches high at 10 feet. Horizontal plane is accurate.
Although this is a lot better than the 6" high that it was shooting before returning it to the factory for adjustment, I would like to have the rear sights milled to bring it closer to POA.
I'm torn, as it is a pup and I don't expect the kind of accuracy that a full size handgun should deliver, BUT, my R9 is dead on, vertical and horizontal, at 10'. In fact, my R9 is surprisingly accurate for such a small handgun.
Any thoughts? Am I being too picky?
Regarding weights and ammo types, at 10' it seems to group the same regardless of brand or weight. I suppose the important thing is where it groups with what I load it for carry purposes (or in this case, for my wife to carry), and that is Hornady Critical Defense.
