As part of my personal USMC Birthday celebration, I took several handguns to the range today, along with the chronograph. Here's the results:

.38 Special (.357 mag 2.5" S&W Model 19)
3.5 gr Bullseye, 158 gr LSWC = 675 fps
Very easy shooting. Pleasant indeed.


Kahr CM9, 115 gr Hornady Critical Defense
1006 fps, vicious little rascal!


Older photo of this nice Kimber.

185 gr Hornady Critical Defense = 1003 fps

230 gr Winchester SXT = 858 fps

230 gr Federal +P = 931 fps (significant recoil, feels good!)

185 gr Nosler JHP bullet over 6.0 gr Bullseye = 927 fps


500 S&W, 440 gr CPB over 28.3 AA#9 = 1345 fps

All in all, it was a great way to spend a damp & cool afternoon. Temp was about 40 degrees.

Still think that S&W 19 looks amazing. Just out of curiosity, do you cast your own, or buy?

Oh, I buy my cast bullets. Thought about casting, but it was just one too many hobbies. Same reason I never took up scuba diving. Just one thing too much.

There's a great local bullet casting guy here in town. I rely on him for my pistol bullets. Mostly.

I can identify with that. Same reason I'm not a pilot.

Me too. That's why I'm not a brain surgeon.

But I cast all sorts of rounds.
