I went back to the range this morning to do some accuracy testing of my Dan Wesson Vigil CCO in .45ACP. The weather was much more cooperative at 75-81 degrees with the heat index only getting up to 87. The first 49 rounds on 4 targets were Winchester white box 230gr ball target loads. I then tried two of my own target reloads on the next 4 targets. All targets were placed at 12 yards.
Targets 1, 3 and 4 are 14 rounds of WWB 230gr ball target loads
Target 2 is 7 rounds of WWB 230gr ball target loads
Targets 5 and 6 are 7 rounds each of 230gr Berry’s plated with 5.0gr of American Select
Targets 7 and 8 are also 7 rounds each of 230gr Berry’s plated with 5.2gr of W231
The dropped rounds on targets 1 and 3 are on me-once because my rest became unstable and once because I flinched as the guy next to me lit off his 7mm Remington Magnum hunting rifle just as I was firing.
I am very pleased with the way this gun shoots. I shoots very close to POA, maybe slightly low. So far, with only about 250 flawless rounds through it, I’m predicting this one is a keeper. I need to shoot at least 250 more to be sure.
