What kind of shot group could I expect to get out of a usp .45 out around 50 yards or so?

Depends on the ammo and more importantly, the shooter. I have never shot mine past 25 and they will easily hold between one and two inches (from a solid rest) but I have heard of many who claim 2-4 inch groups at 50 yards (again from a solid rest). I think the pistol can actually do better because I know they out shoot me at 25 so IMO the limiting factor is primarily the shooter.

Ive only tried 50 yards once just for shits and giggles. useing my HK USP Tac I managed 10 out of 12 rounds in a 7-8 group on a 9 inch paper plate. Ive never tried that distance before so I was kinda thrilled i hit anything let alone the plate.

Using match ammo & a mechanical device like a Ransom Rest to hold the gun, I'd say 1-3" groups could easily be done.

Chickens at 50 and pigs at 75. Glock 21. Since HKs are so accurate, you should do much better than this.

You're right.

Soda cans tipped backwards so you're shooting at the round part at 50...baby chickens at 75

I dunno I know I can hit the berm at Ft Dix out around 260 yrds. If ya never shot a pistol that far ya should do it just for shtts and giggles. My god it takes forever to get there.

at 7 yards, i'm a pretty decent shot, but i admit i'm still pretty sketchy at 25 or more.

i was shooting a tactical with a can at 100yds at a steel plate (3x5' i think) and blazer brass ammo while it was snowing, and i hit the plate almost every time.

i had my 92 brigadier with me at the time, also with blazer brass, and only hit it a few times (like 1 of 5 shots).

i have an expert now, but i haven't tried shooting it that far yet.

To me, this is one huge advantage of an outdoor range over an indoor one: the ability to test one's gun & aiming ability. I have seen many shooters at outdoor ranges who have never shot past 25 yards (or less) until I suggested they try it.

I've shot flywheels, brake drums and rotors at 150 yards with my Tactical .45 from a rest.
