I don't have a scope, but I have a red dot. It's 2 MOA. Not exactly the most precise method, but it's what I'll use to shoot.

I was working on trying to determine what is a more ideal distance to work up loads for it. 25 yards? 50 yards?

I would say 50 yds would be the best as it wili give the bullet time to stabilize, with that being said you need to use sand bags or a gun vise of some type to make sure the gun is stable when testing. will this be for plinking or self defense?

Definitely not self defense. Just hunting
