As suggested more thoroughly above:

Using new factory ammo, shoot 5 shots at 25 yards (with the rear sight set up as Dano details above). It sounds like you've done this before, but aim every shot at exactly the same place on the target. All 5 shots should be within a couple inches of each other, or something is wrong.
