I went out yesterday and fired my XD40 SC at different distances. Here's a target shot at 21 feet with a 2 hand hold. A one inch group that was 1" high and 1" to the right of point of aim using a 6 o'clock hold.

I then moved to 50 feet and shot a 2 1/2" group that printed 3 inches high and 1 1/2 inches to the right.
I then shot at 75 feet from a bench rest and the group size was 3 inches and the group was 6 inches above p.o.a.
This is my first center fire semi auto. My Ruger 44 doesn't have near the variance in point of impact. What should I expect for group size at these different ranges and is it usual for P.O.I. to change so much? What range should this kind of handgun be sighted in for?

in the manual it tells you the POA for the different distances. i believe 25 feet and under, and 25ft and over. so to answer you question, yes this is normal fo rthe xd. i find my sub pretty darn accurate at 25 feet considering the barrel length. mine is a 9 though. practice practice.

My manual says the guns are sighted for a 6 o'clock hold at 25 yards. I'm happy with the P.O.I. and group size at 21 feet. I'm having trouble figuring out why the gun shoots 6 inches high at 25 yards, whether off hand or off the bench.

I would imagine that being sighted in for 25 feet is appropriate for the mission of this type of gun.
