Ammo comparison
« on: March 29, 2013, 11:28:01 PM »
As I mentioned in my introduction, I'm going to be shooting several different brands of 10mm ammo to see which one I shoot best with my Glock 20.

With that said, I was able to compare Corbon 155g DPX to the Buffalo Bore 155g TacXP today at the range.  In short, I shot tighter groups with the Corbons, and they were the first box of shells I've ran in the gun.  However, there was one failure to eject with the Corbon.  I chalked it up to beginner's user error, but there are other reports online so there may be something to it.  I have the targets and will post photos for comparison. 

Grouping patterns were similar, I shot both high and slightly to the left. 

All in all: 
1.  Corbon:  Questionable reliability; Most accurate for me
2.  Buffale Bore:  Gun ate bullets and wanted more, appeared to be of high quality manufacturing; Accurate

I am not in love with the trigger or the sights.  I will have a trigger upgrade to improve the trigger brake, and put on some adjustable sights.  Laser/light combo is also in the pipe works for nightstand duty. 

First impression of the Glock 20 is that I'm not as accurate with the 10 mm as I am with 357 sig and the 10 mm is not as snappy.

Before you beat up on yourself or the sights too much please read the article at this link...

The fixed sights can be drifted to adjust for left to right impact placement.  8)

Great report.  Thanks.  It's hard to imagine there being a real issue with the Corbon load.  It's even harder to imagine there being a real issue with the Corbon load from a G20.
Gun Control?  Oh yes, the theory that becoming a victim is somehow morally superior to defending yourself & your family.  Makes perfect sense.

I really like the Corbons the best at this point.  I am looking forward for future comparisons.  Back to work too soon.
