how much difference in accuracy will a different powder make in a pistol? Reason I am asking is yesterday I was extremely disappointed in a ladder workup using W231 and 124 gr lead.

I am just shooting off sandbags not a ransom rest so I am not expecting 1.5 inch groups at 25 yards but I was getting 6 and 8 inch groups. I did better shooting freehand so it might have just been my technique. Still I am wondering if I should try some jacketed bullets or switch powders first. Dirt soot etc is not really a concern as much as accuracy.
