Take a look at the following silohuette from earlier today. It was shot with my Ruger SP101 at 10 yards.
I seem to have cured my pulling on the DA trigger (thankfully), but there's another issue. My shots at the X hit above in the outer orange ring. My shots at the 9 grouped around 8. My shots at 8 grouped at 7. And so on. Even when dropping the front sight low in the rear notch, I'm shooting 2 to 3 inches high. What do you think I'm doing, and what can I do to correct it?
Then there is my Springfield XDm .40. I love this gun. It makes me look like a far better shooter than I am. Shot at 20 yards.

The above is great advise, switch to Hogues or a custom wood with finger-grooves, the difference is amazing.
You still are definitely developing your DA pull. That skill takes a very long time to perfect. Just load up some snap caps and work on it daily. I do at least 200-300 pulls per night probably 5 nights a week, using both hands. It'll also help to loosen up that trigger.

I'd say the only problem is you are not shooting with the XD enough.
The targets look great. I think with the revolver, you might have a grip issue, but I would be more concerned with the range ( 10 yards ) and where the pistol groups with the sights you have on her.
If it doesn't group point of aim out of a rest at that range, it could be that you have sights there were designed for further than 10 yards. The sights might be too thick and squat, covering too much of the target, forcing your barrel up higher than you would think.
If you don't have a ranson rest, and few do, the next best thing would be to try some serious sandbag action, lock the weapon in place without the sight picture and see where it is grouping at that distance.
It could be you, but it could also just be that you don't have the right sights for the distance you are shooting it. Obviously with the XD, you have proven you can shoot it very well, so it could be two very minor things adding together to force your shots high.
