Best Delta 10mm 50 yard accuracy

For those of you who build or own custom Delta’s, what is the best accuracy any of you have experienced at a distance of 50 yards and again at 25 yards? What ammunition do you think highly of and what barrels do you think produce the best accuracy?

I am would like to see consistent sub 2 inch groups at 50 yards in a full-house Accu-railed gun out of a ransom rest. Is this achievable or just a pie in the sky dream?

2 inch groups can be a reality....will my Delta do it? I'm fairly certain....can I do it with my Delta, no. I do use it for deer hunting,
and I always bring the vennison home....

I personally favor Bar-Sto barrels, as they have always worked well
for me. As far as accurate ammo? Triton 165gr was always my favorite,
but I've gon to Doubletap now that Triton appears dead.

I had my custom Delta built by George Smith of EGW a few years back.
I had him fit a Bar-Sto bbl. in it because I have found, from my experiences, that they are of the highest quality and accuracy. He used one of his hand fit SS bushings.
The only thing that EGW did not do was the sights, they were done by Novak's.
My favorite ammo is my own load using a 200 gr. Hornady XTP/HP loaded in Starline brass with a max charge of AA #9 and a CCI 300 primer.
The next best round that I have fired is the Winchester factory 175 gr. STHP.
2" groups @ 50 yds.? I've never tried it and I do own a Ranson Rest. However, I doubt that my pistol will.
It will put 5 rounds into 1" @ 25 yds. using the RR.
My Delta is intended as a "self defense" pistol. As such, I look upon 100% hits on a "Q" type target at any range good accuracy from a full power pistol/ammo combo.
My favorite test is shooting at a "Q" at 75 yds. from combat type positions. 100% hits is all I require and it will do this if I do my part. With my tired 60 year old eyes, this ain't too bad. :wink:
