I shot the dang Blackhawk 45 again this weekend. I have the rear sight screwed down to the bottom. I even filed off some of the rear sight leaf at the bottom to seat it deeper in the sight, hoping to get it to hit POA.
Still, it is five inches high at 25 yards. It originally was 20" high at fifty yards with my home made loads with the 280 grain WFNGC loaded to about 1000 fps. What should I do here. I don't want to send it to Ruger, I'm afraid they will bend the barrel or something. (Probably replace it with aone that won't shoot.)
How much of the rear sight leaf do I need to file off the bottom to make this work. The sight radius is 6". (show your work)
What bullet weight and velocity will make the 4 5/8" Ruger shoot POA at 25 yards?
Maybe I'm not pulling the trigger hard enough?!
