WhenMonkeysFly...Awesom! Great report!

My last test occured too late in the day and I loss the light and the CHRONY struggled to give good readings so I had to put off the test.

The few I did get readings on...
Smith & Wesson 1006 with Bar-Sto 9X25 conversion 5" barrel
Zero 121gr 0.356" JHP (should be a good hunting bullet)
AA#9 13.0 grains
Velocity 1389 fps

Smith & Wesson 1006 with Bar-Sto 9X25 conversion 5" barrel
Zero 121gr 0.356" JHP (should be a good hunting bullet)
AA#7 11.2 grains
Velocity 1363 fps

Both of these loads seem to have room for more development. I'd like to atleast see 1550-1600 fps from these Zero 121gr 0.356" JHP. I did see those numbers from the 10.2 grain Power Pistol loads. I hope to get more testing in soon, but I had a umbilical hernia surgery which needs to heal properly befor I do any heavy stuff.

I was going to try the Glock 29 out with the Lone Wolf Dist. 9X25 conversion Std length, but when I slipped the slide & conversion barrel on the frame the recoil rod jumped off and locked things up, rather than fool with it in the field, I waited till I got home to disassemble the thing. I really want some numbers from the short barrel.

I did manage to test my muzzle loader (Winchester APEX 45 cal.), it had been loaded since last November with Hornady 200 grain XTP in Harvester sabot, over 100 grain equivalant of (BP) Triple 7 which gave a velocity 1970 fps.
