The barrel was rested and the dot was pretty steady when I shot.
I need to shoot it more from without a rest or shooting stick. I know what you mean about the dot being shakey at more distance, but I know that its more of my shakiness that is making it happen. I need to practice with it more, its definitely a lot more accurate than I can demonstrate with it without a rest. I need to shoot at something other than paper targets with it, water filled cans and such. I need to figure out how far off i can hit a squirrel sized object, like water filled cans. Probably more of that after deer season.
