Hello everyone! I am kinda new to the forum. I own a ruger mark III comp target model pistol. I currently have a 2x scope mounted on it. I was at the range yesterday shooting at 25 yards. I was shooting at a 1" bulls eye. I have noticed the bulls eye is very hard to see even with my 2x scope at that range. I can keep 3-6 shots out of 10 in the bulls eye but I am having to really try at that. Also iam shooting front bench rest. I was thinking about buying a busnell trophy 2-6x32 pistol scope and geting rid of my 2x scope. Do you think I will get better results with a more powerful scope? I think I would but I want all of your opinions.

At 25 yards, 2X is all the magnification you need. Going to a more powerful scope won't help.

A couple hours with a qualified bullseye pistol instructor would make a difference. In lieu of an on-site instructor, download the following, print it, read it, and live it.

I agree, you did NOT mention what brand type,load of ammo you are using, this too will also help you to improve...the rest is all "pracice, practice, practice....." improve and exercise to build up your grip too.......takes time :wink:

Here's a hint, or at least a different direction.

think about taking the scope off and using the iron sights...

the problem with a scope is you think you are supposed to be able to clearly see the idi-bity target...

in contrast:
with Iron sights you are not... you are supposed to focus on the front sight and the target is actually supposed to be out of focus.

for real here now: that's fine shooting with an MKIII at 75ft, don't fret it.

It appears that you are using a 100 yard rifle target (hence the 1" bull). Try a target with a 3" bull -- or even larger -- up to 6". If you can't see your aiming point clearly you'll never have groups as good as they could be.

Thats a good point! Thank you. I will try a larger bullseye at the range the next time I shoot.

Bullseye shooters use a 6" target at 50 feet, download and print some bullseye targets. I practice at 25 yards on them and my scores have improved quite a bit.
