The only claim that I have seen Springfield make isdeadelephant said:Springfield claims a zero at 25yds.
and that is straight from the XD Manual.Springfield Armory pistols are designed to use the 6 oclock sight picture at 25 yards. However, some pistols may shoot point of aim at 25 yards depending on shooter and ammunition.
stunksinatl said:correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that "6 o'clock hold" refers to where one holds the sights in order to hit desired POI. With 6 oclock hold, one holds the sights at the bullseye's "6" to hit the bullseye, right?
That's the way I understand it and it works great for the glock and S&W revolver that I shot.
But with my XD40 even if I aim the other way that Springfield says, with the center dot inline with the target, the POI is still low, when shooting at 10ft, 15ft, and 20ft.
I don't like that my whole front site covers up what I'm aiming at.
I've shot 250rnds of 180grn, and 200rnds of 165grn. Using both WWB and Remington UMC. All shot the same low and left.stunksinatl said:that's interesting....
What bullet weight are you using? If you're using 165, you might try using 180. It is my understanding that heavier bullets tend to have a higher POI compared to lighter ones...
I hope you don't get offended, I'm not questioning your shootability.therooster said:at 25 yrds w/WWB i get a perfect "6 o'clock" POI.
if i remember correctly, its the same at 50yrds... i will test it this weekend.
