Thanks!

I was going to try again tomorrow, I have a new target set-up I was going to try to see if i can hit a little better. It will not help me to hit a ground hog at that distance but at least I will know if the pistol will shoot that far consistently.

    Yes, it was a 686 8" barrel. I was using Federal 125 gr 38 special +P half jacketed hollow points.
