Most accurate ammo for the .40 S&W

What is the most accurate .40 cal ammo you've found? I'm shooting two Glocks, a 22 and a 35, and wondering what y'all have found to be the most accurate. The Federal American Eagle 155 fmj has been what I've found to be best so far, excluding that one box of Winchester Match 155 fmj that I found.

I've had the best luck with the 180gr. stuff, plus it matches the weight of my JHP's.

Win. USA 180 JHP's have proven to be very accurate and reliable in my Glock 23's.

The most accurate 40 is one that is traded for a 45 ACP of the same make. Sorry, but my experience is that the 40 in a particular gun is less accurate than a 45 in the same make of gun. Having said that, anything made by Federal is probably your best bet for accuracy.

My Eagle shoots Samson (IMI) 180gr jfp, and Corbon 135gr JHP very well.
