29 vs 20 Question

Now that I'm in love with my 20SF, I'm thinking of getting a 29SF for the days I don't want a full size. How much velocity/performance loss if any will there be carrying the 29? Thanks in advance!

Given the right ammo, nothing that the bad guy will notice.

This youtube video embedded on Underwood's site compares a 29 and 20 with 10mm Auto 165 Gr.

1362 fps out of g29 with LW barrel.

1308 out of g29 with factory barrel

---

1409 out of g20 with LW barrel

Well as I've learned, 100 fps means nothing at self defense ranges. Sweet.

I think a more important question is whether the recoil in the smaller frame is controllable in a stress situation. I have never fired a 29 so I don't know how much different the recoil is from my 20 but I was assume being smaller and lighter the 29 would have more felt recoil.

As stated, your target isn't going to notice the velocity difference between the two.

Yeah, I'm curious too. I just worked a deal with a guy so I should have one in hand next week or so. Once I put some rounds through it I'll be able to do a good comparison. To me, my 20 kicks less than my 21, with just a bit more muzzle flip. I can't wait to find out.

I generally notice about a 50 fps drop in most of the loads I have tried. This is with a LWD barrel of stock length.

My loads are nothing super hot. 165 grain at about 1225 out of the G20. The same load is 1185 out of the G29.
