    Powerbelts? I use the aerotip 295 gr with 100 gr of pyrodex and they are pretty accurate

    I was running aerotips, but this last purchase at the store got me powerbelts.

    Hi Mazin!

    Your new business must keep you very very busy because you're almost never stopping by.

    May want to try ?normal? bullets. The Powerbelts are slightly undersized. Not that this should cause a big enough difference to make it less accurate than your pistol, but may get better.

    It seems to be accurate enough when I do my part. Using open sights on a target at 100 yards isn't really a skill I've learned properly. When the sights seem to block out the entire target, repeatability becomes an issue.

    I only ended up with the power belts because everything else was gone and the season starts on Saturday. I only bought a 20 pack and am down to only six projectiles so I'll probably be going back to get the large package. Anyway, loading a bunch yesterday I didn't notice they went down the dirty barrel any easier, so I'm not sure about them being undersized. I shot the aerotip first, then a powerbelt and put them both on the steel with the first two shots so the accuracy is probably there.

    I'm complaining a little more than I should because after those shots I moved back to 150ish yards and couldn't hit the steel, so I set up a board with a target sheet and couldn't even get anywhere on that at all. So when I moved back in to 100 yards my shoulder was getting sore (making me anticipate) as my confidence was shot. Still managed to put a few more on the steel and paper at 100, so I'm likely okay.

    What I'm dealing with now is for some reason I set my rear sight slightly left last year, and all my shots are a few inches left at 100. I bent a small screw driver trying to loosen the damn sight and don't know what to do about it.
    Minimize, minimize, minimize.

    Read the package insert that came with the power belts, most of their ?jacketed? ones are slightly undersized.

    But I am sure as you mentioned it?s just other factors.
