Ruger LCP, Kel-Tec P3AT, S&W 442
Got a Ruger LCP; took it and shot about 70 rounds with it straight out of the box, with the exception of adding a little rubber grip enhancer.
I shot 30 rounds of Win. ball, 30 HydraShocks, and 10 Winchester SXT. No problems.
The first thing I did after cleaning the pistol was add a little sight paint to the front sight, it's hard for me to see black on black.
I thought it would be interesting to compare performance over the chrono with my Kel-Tec P3AT and Mag-na-ported S&W 442.
Speed given is the average for 5 shots, chrono about 3 ft. from muzzle.
Hydra Shock 90 gr. 878 FPS / 154# KE
Winchester SXT 95 gr. 774 FPS / 126# KE
Hydra Shok 90 gr. 833 FPS / 139# KE
Winchester SXT 95 gr. 738 FPS / 115# KE
Mag-na-ported S&W 442: (non plus p)
Winchester Silvertip 110 gr. 821 FPS / 165# KE
Remington 110 gr. SJHP 779 FPS / 148# KE
I noticed the Ruger 380 with Fed. HS basically produces the same power as the ported .38 shooting standard velocity ammo.
The Kel-Tec has registered higher velocities with the same ammo in the past, 845 FPS with the HS and 773 FPS with the SXT, but today the Ruger shot faster under the same conditions.
