I bought a new Kobra in 45 ACP but it is not accurate enough and I will be going back to my CZ75 Combat in 9mm.

GRD yes that is the Ed Brown Kobra
Using three different re-loads that I use in my other 45's the Kobra is shooting about 3 to 4 inches low at 10 yards and about 6 inches low at 15 yards and at 25 yards I can not even hit a sheet of 8.5 X 11 papper aiming at the top of it. With my other guns I can keep them in the black at 15 yards all day. Ed did tell me that they are designed to shoot Federal ammo and will not shoot re-loads. I tried a few of the Federal store boughts tonight and I see no difference. I am trying to find out know if that is the best these guns will do, It is very nice to look at but I would not like to shoot comatition with it. My Cz will shoot circiles around it so far.
