Shot results: New Tiberius Rifled barrel vs Stock barrel

Ok folks my results are in. Let me start off by saying a few things about my experiment.

1. Distance - 150ft (measured with tape measure).
2. Wind - slight & occasional 1-2 mph gusts
3. Temp. - high 70's
4. Marker was not 'bolted' down but the place was marked on the table I used so that the same position was used for each shot.
5. Scope sighted to 150ft.
6. Chrono readings ranged from high 270's to low 280's.

All I can say is ! WOW! And to the makers (Lapco) of this barrel. I am VERY impressed with the performance. I am posting pics of my results so you can see for yourself.

This is my 9.1 with rifled barrel sticking out as proof I have one:

I used a piece of plywood that was 4ft by 4ft:

1st set of results (horizontal measurement):
Horizontal measurement Rifled Barrel - 8 inches 017 by gman4791, on Flickr[/img]

Vertical measurement with results:
Total Height with Rifled Barrel- 13 inches 015 by gman4791, on Flickr[/img]

Now, results using the stock barrel (horizontal 1st):

Finally, the vertical measurements using the stock barrel:

Final results recap:

Rifled barrel - 8 inch total difference horizontally & 13 inches separating the shots vertically. As you can see, 6 shots were tightly grouped, the 3rd shot went 'rogue', 4th shot was off by 3 inches to the right & 4 inches high. Still would be a hit. Even the 'rogue' shot could have very likely been a hit.

Stock: 18 inches separating the shots vertically NOT including the 2 that missed the 4x4 ft target completely (1 shot went high & right while the other went way left). 24 inches separating the shots horizontally (also not including the 2 that missed). Only 1 shot came close to the center aim point as opposed to 6 with the rifled barrel.

Onward with the question/comments...
