As far as using the open sights from a rest I would guess around an inch or so?PlumberjimC said:What can I expect as typical for the reasonably experienced shooter with whatever ammo it likes best from sandbags at 25yds?
I know it will always shoot better than I ever will.
Goeskinner said:Where did you get the velocity information on the Dynapoints? (Winchester does not list them on their website, or at least not where I could find them.)
I include Dynapoints in my spreadsheet of most 22LR ammunition (see http://www.flat5.net/22LR_velocities.html) but had to leave a lot of blanks because I couldn't find an authoritative reference for the velocity.
Thanks in advance.

Dynapoints are not standard velocity. See the link in the previous message or, to ferret it out for yourself, go to http://www.winchester.com/, click Questions, click FAQ, and search in "Ammunition" for "Dynapoint" (but not "Dynapoints"). It says, "The Dynapoint is the same cartridge as the WW22LR ..." and, if you follow the link to that cartridge, you'll see these are the Wildcat cartridge. They are definately high velocity.skoda said:PlumberjimC;
Try Winchester Dynapoints, available at your nearest Wally World(Wal-Mart. Inexpensive, standard velocity, clean shooting and best of all extremely accurate in my 41. Enjoy your Smith, it's a great pistol and you will never wear it out.
The original post asked what kind of accuracy was possible using a rest. And when adding a scope along with benchrest the groups using a 41 can get pretty tight.There was test of a 41 on a bullseye site where sub one inch groups were made @ 50 yards and these were 10 shot groups!Cap'n Tom said:I'm impressed with the groups mentioned in this string. Tighter groups than most magazine tests on any pistol/revolver positioned in a Ransom. Serious competitors?
It sounds like you are a good shot - better than a lot of folks could ever hope to do! But like I mentioned - shooting from rest is much diferent than off hand. In the target below I have a 10 shot group fired with a non PA 4X Leupold from a rest - even with the fliers it is about .65" center spread. And the bullseye target was shot one handed with a dot sight at the same distance - it is a 50 shot group.Cap'n Tom said:I'm old, and maybe not so good, but I shoot a lot of different handguns at 25 (meters, not yards, 81 feet compared to 75 feet in 25 yds), standing, two handed, and I'm thrilled if I can keep all my shots on a 5" shoot-n-see bull. Most at the range I shoot at consider me to be quite a good shot.
I tried Dynapoints in my 41 and had about the same number of stovepipes as I do with ammunition that is marked "High Velocity." On the other hand, when I shoot ammunition marked "Standard Velocity", I don't have that problem.ftstinyc said:Don't care what Winchester says they are not the same. Wildcats are lead
rd nose. Dyna's are copper wash with a slight hollow point. Wildcats are 1255
fps. Dyna's are 1150 fps. Shoot them side by side and you will see the differents. Run a search under the ammo forum and you will find all of this
information. I have shot both and they are not even close. Dynapoints were
at one time only sold to K-mart and that may be the reason you don't see
them on Winchesters site.
