    Some 45ACP chronograph results

    First sign of spring=I drug out chronograph to range. Results:

    5"1911: WWB230jhp-896fps (es-22), Rem230GS-825fps(es21), Rem 185+pGS-1141fps(es17), WWB230fmj-810(es 2).

    Commander: WWB230jhp-863fps(es 15), Rem230GS-800fps(es 52), Rem185+pGS-1099fps(es 4).

    5 shot avgs. WWB shot tad lower than GS, I guess due to differences in velocity. Accuracy about the same for me. New ammo. Temp.75F.

    So... About 30-40 fps difference.

    That's good info to know. Thanks for sharing.


    (btw: do you have an officer's sized weapon to try, by any chance?)

    Do you happen to be in Eastern NC?

    I'm in southeastern VA about 20 min from the border... Maybe we could get together?

    If you are near Goldsboro I would be willing to supply a Officers size model to add to the results.

    Sorry, lived in ENC for long time but near Salisbury now. Chamber and barrel diameter can sometimes make a shorter barrel shoot faster than a longer one but I've found most of the time the "50fps/inch rule" to be valid.
