Video glock 20 oem vs lone wolf barrel accuracy. Drastic difference

In this video accuracy between the lone wolf and factory barrel is drastic. Difference of feet in accuracy at 50 yards. This guy is a hardcore Glock fan so i dont think he trying to knock them in any way. It would have been nice if he compared the two barrels using standard loads. Is this due to the use of the hard cast bullets or is this consisent with all ammo. I've read varying reports from there is no difference in accuracy between the factory barrel and aftermarket to a significant increase when dropping in a lone wolf, kkm, etc. I've read many post on here about how accurate the glock 20 is that with the factory barrel or an aftermarket. Would like some definative answers based on actual experience using the two. Thanks in advance!

Wow, that really is pretty surprising. The factor barrel sucked with that ammo, the Lone Wolf barrel was just fine with it.

I'm hoping its just the ammo. Looking to purchase a glock 20 but this was somewhat troubling.

Not surprising. Lead bullets fired at high velocity from a polygonal rifled barrel = poor accuracy. The LW barrel has traditional rifling. The coated bullets (I like Bayou) fired at slow-moderate velocities can work very well.
If you want to fire full-house 10mm loads through your factory barrel, use jacketed bullets.

This is just with the lead bullets. Heavy FMJs work fine in the stock 10mm barrel. I use 200 XTPs for pig hunting. However, I do note generally better accuracy all around with my Lone Wolf aftermarket barrel. And this is the same across all my calibers (9mm, 10mm, 357sig, 40sw, 45acp, 45gap)
