A little Low and Left?

Anyone have an issue with their Ultra Carry II's shooting a bit low and left consistently at 7 to 10 yds. ?

I have about 200 through my new UC II and it has been flawless in terms of function. However, POI seems to be consistently 3"-4" low and left pretty consistently at 7 yrds with a variety of different loads.

I have shot several different brands of 185 gr HP...but primarily PMC 230 grn FMJ for the break in process.

Just wondering if anyone had run into this.

Thx for the input........

You're a right-handed shooter, right?

For me, firmer left hand grip and more trigger finger in the trigger guard (trigger contact closer to the first knuckle) Also, I started target shooting with one eye only, to removed any visual confusion I was having because of the poor indoor lighting. That helped settle down my sight picture and stopped me from jerking the trigger when I thought I was on target. Squeeze on exhale.

Anyway, that's what is working for me.

Ditto what Gator said. I would bet that, unless you are a master marksman, the gun is much more accurate than you are. 7:00 is extremely common for right-handed shooters.

That's really nice shooting, PorcheVille. What's the distance on the silhouette?

My groups are much more open, but I'm working on it.

That was 7 yards. 100 rnds. That is also my best target. I think it was when I first put my night sights on. I shot yesterday but I won't be showing that target...I'm working on it too.

Here is another target. I can't remember if it was the same day as the other. It may have been. Most targets I don't take pics of. Also 7 yards. (Indoor range. That is where it is lit. Next light is 50 feet....but down there the target seems to move just as I shoot.)

Still, good shooting.

I've made a hole like that at 7 yards and at 10 yards, but there is usually a swarm of other holes surrounding it out in the 9 & 8 ring.
