I'm wondering about th accuracy that Y'all are able to get our of yours. I took mine out today and was only able to get 5"-6" groups at 100 yards. This was with Remington UMC 115 grain FMC rounds.

I know that it's not a sniper rifle, but I would like to know how far from the norm this is. The reason I'm asking is that I had a mishap a while back while cleaning it resulting in a broken rod and some scratches/gouges down the inside of the barrel. I learned my lesson and I only use one piece coated rods for everything else, but the damage was done.

I will try other ammo soon and see what the results are, but in the meantime, how accurate are yours?

I can do 4" at 100 yards with WWB 115 grain JHP.

I get about that at 100yds with my .40 and a bit better say 4" to 5" with the 9mm... using my loads... WWB 9MM and UMC .40 180grain are about the same...maybe a bit worse. honestly I hardly shoot them at 100yds... to me their more a 25 to 50 yard gun anyway... either will produce one ragged hole at 25 and open up just a bit more at 50. One thing that helped mine a BUNCH was getting 400-500 rds through them... the triggers were much nicer and made accurate shooting easier once broken in.

+1 for me. Just like the old Michelob commercials, Some Days are Better Than Others.
I opt to shoot at 50 and 25 yards as it is more realistic of the sub2k's realistic potential. Maybe try a variety of different ammo, it may prefer a certain grain over another, WWB over UMC, etc to tighten up the groupings.

Thanks guys! I'll try with some other loads when I get to the range next week. FWIW, I also noticed that the trigger has improved since I bought it. Quite a bit actually.
