Wow, were they from the same box/lot? ES and SD are horrible.
Yes--same box.
The minute or so between shots for 8 rounds should not make a huge difference ..... now if you cranked off a dozen on a cold day in a mad minute and then left one in the chamber for a minute, I'd expect a higher velocity from the higher powder temp ....
My reasoning as well.
Thank you all especially stag for posting stats that confirmed my initial suspicion.
Glad to be of service.

I also may have had the "luck of the draw" for getting a bad batch--I have a stunning knack for purchasing defects in my firearms adventures. LOL Last year I bought a box of 45-70 federal stuff from a local GS--had trouble getting the cartridges to chamber; came to find out they were literally bent. Local GS said no way refund once ammo went out the door.
If you’re ever hiking in the woods and you get lost, just look up and find the brightest star in the sky and you’ll know which way space is.
I am NOT an expert--I do not have any formal experience or certification in firearms use or testing; use any information I post at your own risk!
