    Chronographed the 2 today. Glock 32 with Lone Wolf 4.5" barrel, Shooting Chrony 1st screen at 10', about 90d.F.

    Commercial load #23918--1355FPS, SD 7, sample size 10.
    LE HV load #54234--1371FPS, SD 11, sample size 10.

    Both shot small groups. I'm impressed and I'm now carrying the HV load.

    Interesting. I expected a wider range between the two. I am carrying the Speer LE Gold Dot "Duty Ammunition" 53972. It has a much more potent recoil than the Remington Golden Sabers I carried originally. Thanks for your results.

    YW, Frank. I have a new CED chronograf coming tomorrow so will soon have some new data on these various loads. I have no more of the regular 125GD loads* but plenty of the LE HV loads plus the Fiocchi Extreme XTP Line 124g. loads. Also have my 2 reloads--for PD (124g. XTPs over 800X that achieved about 1400FPS last time) and practice (124g. Berry's HPs over Longshot).

    I guess my next trip to Ben Avery will be for velocity measuring. Poor me. :supergrin:

    Will post soon.

    * If anyone has a dozen Speer 125g. GD factory loads to ship to me, I'll ship you that many of the LE HV loads plus a check for your shipping cost. E-mail me at jeffreybehr(at)cox(dot)net if you're interested.
