Don't get me wrong, I love S&W and the M&P platform but the inaccuracy is driving me nuts.
At 25ft, I am getting 4-5" group vs 1-2" group from my Beretta ... and 0.5-1" group with overlapping holes from a S&W 627 revolver. No such issues with my M&P45.
Same story at 50ft, with groupings adjusted wider. In fact, if you were to look at the paper plate, the M&P grouping looks like a shot gun discharge.
All the ammo were hand loaded MG (115gr and 124gr) for the 9mm pistols and the 357mag was LSWC 158gr Hunter's Supply. I have previously used factory loads and they were similar.
I think this is the last straw and I'm about to ditch this M&P ... until I started reading about Storm Lake, KKM ... and the upcoming Apex/Bar-Sto 3rd-party barrels.
In your opinion and experiences, do you think the current Storm Lake or KKM barrels will make any significant difference in improving the accuracy of the M&P9 ?
I have sent in the gun to S&W and it was returned to me without anything done to it except firing 5 rounds of 115gr FMJ and claiming it was within factory specs.
