    WWB vs Ranger SXT .40S&W

    Went to the local range today, since I hadnt been in awhile. Last weekend, at the gunshow, I bought a 50 round box of Ranger SXT 165 grain ammo for testing. I have just shot close to 1000 rounds of WWB, maybe 50 rounds of Hydra-Shok at the range. (Shooting a XD40-4)

    At the range, I started out with 50 rounds of WWB into a B-27 at 7 yards. All except 1 flyer were either 8's or 9's, no "X". Loaded in 20 rounds of SXT, at the same target, at the same distance, and put ALL 20 rounds in the "X", which was missing when done! This was all done using the Weaver stance.

    Now, I am not a "Sharpshooter" and dont shoot competition, plus, I have the "shakes" at times, due to age, but I was greatly impressed into what different ammo does in accuracy. Course, cant afford to shoot SXT 100% of the time, but I will make sure that at least 25% of my shooting experiece will be of quality ammo. Course, the SXT will be my carry ammo.

    Now, if I could only improve on my S&W638 2" wheelgun; although I did find out that the laser sight from Crimson Trace surely did help in target reaction. I shot both some WWB 125gr FMJ and GoldDot 135gr +P I just purchased ($15 20ct box). Hard to tell which was better, as I was just getting use to +P and not really concentrating on accuracy. Next time will compare.

    Maybe premium ammo is the ticket
