    Just out of curiosity what size of shot pattern do you consider POI/POA. It’s a short barreled center mass pistol with fixed sights not a bullseye shooter. Its generally set up from the factory to shoot POI/POA at a certain distance with a certain weight bullet. You’ll chaise your tail trying to determine the correct powder,
    charge weight, and bullet combination to shoot POA/POI. Put your front sight deep into the rear sight and aim further in the 6 o’clock.

    Or

    Shoot to the distance with a given load the revolver shoots POA/POI, after all there’s a finite POA/POI with any weapon system until you have to adjust something.

    It doesn’t take much misalignment of the sights to change a snub revolvers POI.

    It was the loose nut behind the gun!! It is shooting a tennis ball size 5 shot pattern mostly an inch high at 20 yrds on SA, That opens a lot in DA and I am pulling the shot right. I had some 125 grain and 158 grain bullets on Sunday and did not matter which I shot both weights patterned the same. I was not high enough on the grips and I added a Tayler talon (?) and the 6 inch high went away. Now I just have to really work on my DA trigger pull.............. a lot.

    I’ll emphasize again that Claude’s videos cover some information that are truly essential to running snub. He covers the various sighting options and ways to improve the factory sights, proper stock selection, grip choices and running the trigger smoothly in DA mode. He also covers various reloading techniques and shooting drills. They are well with the cost.
