    What would you say the maximum effective range is for a 9mm Sub 2000? How bad is the bullet drop at 100 yards and beyond? What about accuracy?

    i use dto have one that i zero'd at 100. it is quite an arc that the bullet takes. It is about almost 4 inches high, on avg, with the diff loads i shot, at 50 yds. at 150 yds, the bullets were usually pulling up divots.

    I am good out to 100 yards with my Hi-Point carbine. 9mm has a trajectory close to a 22 Long Rifle so 200 yards is possible with alot of holdover. I can hit the 200 yard plate about 25% of the time using the open sights. Depends on your definition of "effective".

    I used this method from the Maryland AR15 Shooter's site to zero my Beretta Storm. It was designed for a 9mm AR, but since the AR, the Storm, and the Sub2K all have very tall irons, It translated just fine.

    By zeroing at 25 yards, you are taking advantage of the very tall "height over bore" of the iron sights. My Storm was point of aim from pretty much zero to 100 yards, and by flipping to the LR rear tab and holding at the top of the "black" on the standard bullseye target, I was still within the black at 150 yards.

    Accuracy with the Storm was 3" - 4" at 100 yards. I know you asked about the Sub2K, but I never shot mine beyond 25 yards, and never off a bench. It was good enough for what I was doing with it though.

    I've seen recommendations to use +P 9mm with the Sub 2000. Hadn't tried it yet myself, just got one and and it's been too rainy to go to an outdoor range. :p
