Any one else's V2 shoot low? Mine shoots about 1/2-3/4 inch below the POA at 15-20 yards. I know how to compensate for it, but forget to if I have not shot in a month or so.

It is good info. It is basically what I have to do only in reverse. I was mostly wondering if it is typical with a V-2. I know at 75 feet I have to aim above the target, about 4 inches above the Bulls eye.

I can guess?.....and its only a guess.

I would 'suspect' that the sights are set for 25 (or possibly 50?) meters with 124 gr ammo. And the 1/2-3/4" difference you are getting has to do with distance and or bullet weight.
Like I said- just a guess.

I do shoot 115 gr. so maybe that is it. I don't shoot a lot at 25 yards, usually 10 rounds at the end of the session. Just to make sure I can still hit the target that far out.

consider the combat hold...I had simliar issue with sfx shooting low and was advised that stock Caniks are sighted in with a combat hold in mind...hard to wrap my head around that, but I tried it...viola, more better

Try shooting it from a rest and have several people shoot it. It could be a grip or a small flinching issue thats causing it to shoot low.

I will try the combat hold.

I usually shoot by myself, and am a pretty decent shot. I can put 7 out of 10 in a 6 inch circle at 25 yards standing. I will pull one here and there, but know it as soon as I do it.
