Because of the aiming limitations of my open-sighted test sample, I did all shooting at 50 yards. The 50-meter, three-shot test target that came with my rifle measured less than 1 inch, but I was never able to do as well. Of several three-shot groups with both Federal and Winchester loads with 300-grain, copper-jacketed bullets, two of the three shots would usually be close or overlapping but the third shot would be nearly 2 inches away, which would translate into 4-inch groups at 100 yards. The best accuracy came with a 400-grain, soft-cast lead bullet pushed by 25 grains of IMR-4759 for a velocity of about 1,300 feet per second. Having a scope to aim with, that load would probably go 2 inches or less at 100 yards and make this new A. Uberti Model 1885 sing like a true Italian.
