Big woopee. I also received the email from DT. I see why McNett isn't
trying to sell it based on kinetic energy numbers. I'm certainly not impressed.
The velocity looks good till you look at the whole picture.
I also agree with jason.223 where he said; "I will bet they will not come close to what the factory says." The "1725fps" is based on shooting from a 4.25" barreled S&W M&P. I'ld be surprised if they (either the 9 or 357 load) chrono out to within 75fps of that. If so, kinetic energy drops to -
1650 fps = 484 ft-lbs
1485 fps = 392 ft-lbs
