|G32 with seemingly ubiquitous PHLster and UpLULA|
I brought along a twenty-round box of Hornady Critical Duty 135gr FlexLock and a fifty-round box of Winchester RA357B 125gr Ranger Bonded hollow points.
The gun still showed that it liked a strong grip, as the slide didn't trickle all the way back into battery after firing one of the Rangers. If this is a persistent problem, I'm going to talk to smarter people and see what they say about going to a stronger recoil spring.
Ballistics, in case you don't want to decipher my chicken scratch in the picture:
Hornady Critical Duty 135gr
Winchester RA357SB 125gr Ranger BondedNote that, once again, Hornady delivers amazingly consistent numbers. That 8.66fps Standard Deviation is match-grade in anybody's book. Interestingly, Winchester claims 1350fps for this load from a 4.00" test barrel, and I observed 1348 from a 4.00" gun. This was a novelty to me.
If anybody's still turned on by energy numbers, that's 422 foot-pounds for the Critical Defense and 504 for the Ranger.
So, that makes 169 total rounds fired with three failures to go completely into battery (#63, #78, #126). 1,831 rounds left to go.
