Your target will make a huge difference. I find that the best target is a Bright White round target such as a desert plate at 100 yards. For closer range check your pantry for cans to use as a template to cut down paper plates or card stock into circles.
I find that it is much easier to center the dot on a bright white target.
On accuracy I would guess that around 3 inches at 100 yards will be a pretty fair group after you get warmed up. I find that I am shooting much better after a few range sessions. About the same results as I get with a scope. I get better the more that I shoot.

countryboy, I too was having difficultly getting decent groups at 100 yards with my 460 XVR.....until I was given a very good tip from another member here. I believe that it was Bob Roach that gave me the suggestion.

Make a bold circle on your target paper ( inside of circle not painted) just large enough for the dot to remain inside of the painted circle. I went from dismal to very happy results. I’m only measuring 4 shot groups, as I have a “charge hole” that throws a shot far out of group....every time! My last 3 groups have been under 3 1/2”, with the last group at 2 5/8”. For me.....those are outstanding groups!

I was initially concerned that my “homegrown” 400 grain, cast bullets simply wouldn’t shoot from my handgun. Pleased to report.....that is not the case!

I wish you as much success with your handgun, as I’m having with mine! memtb
