G29 accuracy with 4.6" barrel
« on: November 21, 2017, 04:22:18 AM »
For some reason accuracy is all over the map. It was so bad I got my stock barrel  and 5.5# connector back. Accuracy came back then. I think my 29 disagrees with this barrel.

Any ideas?

That's funny, I got good accuracy from it. Matched the stock barrel. It was all stock then.

Oh, how far were you shooting? The most I did was 16 yards.
How powerful is 10mm? Well, see those craters on the moon?

10 yards. I even had my son try it. I'm just going to keep it I reckon and add a 40 and 357 barrel too.

I found a set of lightly used 4.6" and 6" KKM barrels for my G29...  But haven't had time to play with them... 

I'll report back after hunting season, in a couple of months with what I found...  My focus is a big critter SD load...  Griz is in the hood...

Focusing on 200GR HC lead bullets with big meplats...

Several great loads to work with here on the forum...

And again, thank you all for your contributions, and Happy Thanksgiving!

I don't know what to say Ok. What loads are you shooting? Does the barrel wiggle in your slide?

I'd hate to think I gave you a bum barrel.

I'm going to get some 40 S&W FMJ's, 10mm FMJ's, and try some of my Underwood 200gr Noslers. The ammo that went everywhere was Hornady Critical Duty and Sig V-Crowns.

Come to think of it, all I shot was Uw 10mm 180 and 200.

I never tried any other barrels out of my 29 it was so accurate with the stock I didn't fool with it
