Ok, 20 yards. Storm barrel on left, factory barrel on the right. Top is 165 grains bottom is 180 grains. The storm wins for me. It's not as accurate as the hand fitted Apex barrels, but until Randy make a barrel in 40 sw, I'm happy with the Storm Lake barrel.



Bottom left target, has two groups. First group was brand new barrel, first 5 shots. I was holding at the bottom of the bull. I then adjusted my front sight. I tapped the front sight back to center from where it was tweaked slightly off center. Set it to dead center, and the rest of the groups were aiming right on the bull.

Storm lake packed them in there. My 9mm conversion and .357 Sig barrels seem to shoot better than the factory .40 as well. Though I generally am not going to shoot the groups you got from 20yds. Thats not bad at all.
