    Do you carry the same ammo for both? I was wondering because of powder burn rate vs. shorter barrel. DOC

    Never gave it much thought, but yes same ammo. Now I'm curious, next time I have the chronograph set up I'll shoot a string through the 22 & 27 just to see how much difference there really is.

    Yes sir. If the weather holds, I'll get to it MAYBE tomorrow. There will of course be an extra charge for expedited service.

    Same ammo. That why I bought a GL27 to go with my GL22. Two guns, one type of ammo.

    I asked this question about 5 years ago and someone had data with velocity differences between models. If memory serves me there is about a 100 fps difference between each barrel length.

    Chronograph results, interesting and NOT very impressive.

    Ammunition Black Hills 180 gr. JHP so called duty loads.

    G27 average vel. 913.6 fps
    G22 " " 978.7 fps
    Difference 65.1 fps

    Black Hills Ammunition claims 1,000 fps from this load, but no information is provided as to what firearm was used or if a universal receiver was used.
