Chrono session is over. Here are the results.

Post by Retiredtrooper » Wed May 01, 2019 10:27 pm

Here's my findings from this morning's session with the Competition Electronics chrono that showed up yesterday. Just want to say thanks to the shooting Gods for not letting me shoot the thing in the process of testing.
I fired 5 rounds of each load from each gun. I had an SFX (5"bbl), an Elite-S (4"), my CZ Scorpion carbine (16"), and my latest aquisition, a SIG P365 (3"). The chrono was set up about 6' from the muzzle. Here's what I got:

SFX: AMMO LOW HIGH AVERAGE ADVERTISED VELOCITY

HUSH 165 841 882 856
Freedom 115 1403 1461 1437
Freedom 147 ball 907 992 963


That's about it kids. I'm still impressed with the accuracy and power of the Ammo Depot remans, but those nickel cases aren't worth diddly in the carbine. They work fine in a handgun. The Freedom Munitions 115 surprised me with being over the advertised velocity, and they're very accurate. However, as I mentioned before, their cost for remans is greater than factory from other sources. I didn't shoot all choices in the little SIG. The Freedom 147JHP ammo is slow, but very comfortable in the little gun. The bullets they're loaded with are Hornady XTP jhp's. All these rounds are accurate, particularly in the carbine, but in the pistols as well. I may do a review of the P365 here. I'm very impressed with it so far.

That's it....for real this time. I'm tired, it's late and I just don't feel like typing anymore tonight. If you have any questions, I'll be glad to try and answer them.

Interesting. I've been shooting the Speer Lawman 147gr using their advertised numbers for a PF but I may need to test shoot some Freedom Munitions rounds to see the comparison.

I'm got 500 rds of Syntech 150gr. rounds that advertise at 870 fps that works out to 130.5 PF. I shot one box and then seemed very soft shooting. But, they are like hens teeth right now.

The Freedom is very soft shooting, but like I said, their price for remans is more than you can buy factory new. The Federal I tested I bought for $168/1000 with free shipping. The Freedom remains are over $200.......about .22 per round. Their ammo is quite accurate in my guns.
