9mm Hi Power Velocities


Unless otherwise noted, all velocities are based on 10-shot averages taken with the pistol being fired approximately 10' from the screens. The barrel will be the standard factory barrel unless mentioned otherwise.  Velocities are in ft/sec as are extreme spreads and standard deviations. I do not have the latter two figures on all loads. As there can be variations between certain lots of ammunition, the velocities shown are the ones more consistently in the same "ball park" as seen over several test sessions. Some loads shown are no longer produced, but are included because this ammunition is still being used by some Hi Power shooters. This information will be updated when new loads are chronographed or if significant changes are seen in any previously tested. An asterisk indicates that the load is no longer produced.
