My S&W .38 model 315 (snub nose) when fired at 7 yds will drop 10 inches. When fired at 12-15 yds. it is relatively accurate. I shoot 110 gr. to 130 gr. bullets. Either Federal Hydra Shok 110 gr. or Winchester 130gr. FMJ I know a .38 snub nose is meant as a belly gun but why the drop at 7 yds? Any comments would be appreciated.
