So, I played with the two S&W pocket heaters and the chronograph yesterday. Here're the numbers for the five loads I tried:
Federal 95 grain Lead Semiwadcutter:
Federal 85 grain Jacketed Hollowpoint*:
Georgia Arms 100gr Jacketed Hollowpoint:
Winchester 95gr PDX1 Jacketed Hollowpoint
Hornady 90gr Critical Defense FTX Jacketed Hollowpoint
If you're the sort that likes muzzle energy figures, that's an average of 150, 152, and 171 for the .32s and 162 and 156 for the .380s.
If I'd been clever, I'd have used my Suunto Vector to
get the weather data at the range, but Weather Underground says it was about 70 degrees out.
While the velocity spread wasn't horrible on the Hornady, I was a little surprised that it wasn't more consistent, mostly based on the 9mm Critical Duty I've chono'ed, I guess. That stuff was freakishly consistent for +P service ammo.
*The Federal 85 grain got an asterisk because that ammo was rolling loose in the bottom of my ammo can and the ten rounds likely came from several different lots purchased over a five or six year period.
