200 gr XTP's ?

I am not getting these bullets to group well in my Glock 30s.
I am loading between 5.2 and 5.8 gr of bullseye, taper crimped at .473 with OAL of 1.255. At 25 yds they are grouping about 8 or 9 inches, not much of a group at all more or less just all over.
Remington and federal factory ammo with 230 gr jacketed round nose group about 2 inches.
What is wrong with my loadings or what am I doing wrong ?

I didn't get great results with bullseye, but the 200 gr xtp loved longshot. I did however get pretty good results with bullseye and the 230 gr xtp

I use the Lee loading manual, and keep to their OAL. Taper crimp with Hornady die.

I however use several different powders.
Blue Dot, Long Shot, Unique....
Looking for some Accurate #7.

Haven't had any accuracy problems with either bullets, or the powders listed. Of course I'm using a Springfield Armory Champion not a Glock.

My 8" patterns are usually out at 50 yards.

I use the OAL listed in the Hornady manual, and use a light taper crimp.
