That sounds awfully high. In the case of a cartridge producing a nominal 1,000 fps velocity, that would amount to a 20% to 30% variance. For something like a .45 auto or a .38 special, the percentage variance would be even higher. I realize that different handguns may produce different velocities, even with the same barrel length, but the same lot of ammunition fired from the same gun should produce more consistent results, don't you think?
