    Hey all, I was able to get out and do a little shooting before the Christmas festivities with the fairly decent weather we've been having and chronied a few types of 40 call ammo. All rounds were fired from my Gen 2 G23 with only about 1k through the pipe, it was rested on top of a 50 cal can on a bench. The ZQ4355 grouped the best followed by the RA40T, all others grouped acceptably (for me anyways). All rounds cycled and locked the slide back perfectly, the velocities were recorded @ 10' from the muzzle, the range was 20 yards. The XM40HC does appear to be a step faster than the other 180 grain loads but, no less controllable.

    XM40HC Lot #42V749X018: 1039, 1011, 1025, 1034, 1032, 1024, 1033, 1033, 1038, & 1046

    ZQ4355 Lot #31CH70: 1023, 1031, 1023, 1030, 1016, 981, 983, 1017, 982, & 1025

    RA40TA Lot #27CE40: 1121, 1121, 1111, 1109, 1125, 1099, 1120, 1138, 1109, & 1075

    RA40T Lot #27CK20: 989, 1002, 1006, 1005, 1006, 1009, 1005, 995, & 992

    XM40SWB Lot #48C754R023: 1217, 1228, 1218, 1220, 1220, 1210, 1163, 1178, 1211, & 1194

    Thanks for posting. I have a new G23 and just bought a case of XM40HC intending it to be my carry ammo. Looks good here.

    I chrono'd the xm40hc and xm40ha out of my G22. My hc numbers were around 1050 fps. With the longer barrel that makes sense. The ha's were in the 1200 fps area.
