Not bad. First try about 5" at 25 yards. I am sure if I get more time to fool with it that will shrink. Sure is a mess to clean though.

Nice job! I have always wondered what kind of accuracy I could get from the target model. I have only owned the snubby.
This gun from a bench at 25 yards will keep 5 shots touching with the load I am using. It chronographs 852fps.

The original target bulldogs had beautiful fit and finish. I have two 70's target bulldogs that are works of art. I have had to change cranes in a few of them. The newer ones aren't finished as nice but I would say are a little tougher.
