Hitting an 8 inch steel plate at 400 yards isn't a problem either once holder over or turret adjustments were figured out.
Do you use plain black sights on your pistols as well? I find illumination like a fiber optic pistol or shotgun sight makes shooting faster because you pic up your aiming reference faster.
