Accuracy of stock Ruger MKIII and Springfield Loaded at 50 yards

Post by knightimac on Thu Jun 12, 2014 12:02 pm

Hi

I shot my Ruger Mark III 22/45 and Springfield Loaded 45 at 50 yards this past Tuesday.

Ruger did 2.35" groups to 3" groups.  Blazer .22 ammo.

Springfield printed 3.5" to 4" groups at 50 yards. 200 gr SWC 4.5 bullseye.  All shot from sandbag rest.

Not too bad considering I have not invested in accurizing the pistols.

Springfield had scope rail put on slide and great trigger job by local gunsmith Charlie Fosnocht here in SE PA.  Ruger is bone stock.

I'll try and down load pics.

CCI Std Vel or Aguila might offer slightly better results with the Mk III. Trigger and sear work will help the Mk III for bullseye, but not much for shooting off sandbags.  Personally, for Rugers I prefer the Mk II Target (slabside) model with a good sear, trigger and Ultradot.  The Springfield is a good starting point for a bullseye gun and a good 1911 gunsmith can certainly improve it for bullseye.

Now, imagine what the Ruger could do with proper target ammo. Not bad for a $300 gun.

Rugers like that will shoot 2'' or less with good ammo, but try downloading those 200's if they are lead to 3.9 and you should group better, 4.5 bullseye is hot for a lead load with a 185 or 200 lswc.

Try 3.8 gr N310 with a factory crimp with those 200 gr LSWC bullets.
