I have a problem that makes no sense. I can shoot the targets on the left and be dead on, but the ones on the right always give me problems. The targets are not even 3 feet apart. I am sitting down and using a rest. When friends come over to shoot, I give them the ones on the left because I know the ones on the right is my weak spot and I am trying to correct it. I have paid attention to my sights, which eye and how I'm holding the weapon. It has to be something simple that I'm missing.

Maybe it's the way your support hand connects when you turn right?
Are you sitting or standing?

I'm sitting and using a rest.
I was just told on another form to adjust my body and not just my hands when I switch targets. I will try that next time. It has got to be something as simple as that.

Copied from other forum.

"Shift/pivot your whole body" Tim Sullivan and LadyFaire said, ok, I did.
I put 15 rounds in all 4 targets shooting 5 rounds at a time at each target and this is what I ended up with.
That solved my problem, thank you.

hobbles after you gave the place to get those target plates I sent for some. I need get one welded back up. I had a 5.56 flyer hit one. It didn't go thru but almost.

verkalak,
I've just been using mine for both my 9mm's and they are holding up pretty darn good for me.

And using 38 grains of Tite Group it can do this.
They clear all 4.

They hold up great too a handgun. I was trying sight in a rifle scope and thought I was well below the plate.
