    I was bored today, so I put some rounds thru my Walther PPS and chrono. 3 shots each, then took the average.

    Rem 115gr FMJ 1024fps
    Wn Ranger NATO FMJ 124gr 1097
    Win PDX1 124gr 1139
    Win Ranger 127gr 1165
    Feberal HST 124gr 1114
    Corbon DPX 115gr 1162
    Gold Dot +P 124gr 1130
    Gold Dot short brl 115gr 1138
    Fed Hydra shok 124gr 998

    Nothing real interesting, other than I was surpised the Hyrashok was the slowest of everything.


    BTW, I carry the Ranger 127gr. Funny it was the hottest round(well DPX was faster, but its lighter)

    Surprised the GD 124+P is about the same as the PDX 124 and HST 124. Maybe the barrel on the PPS is too short to make use of the extra pressure?

    Is the PDX1 the +P variant?

    Very interesting and glad you were bored today. I just bought a Sig SP2022 9x19. The barrel is 4", so this gives me an idea of what to expect. I bought a PPS and sold it without even firing it. That one's on my list of guns I wish I had back.
