Freedom Munitions 9mm 147gr

I recently starting experimenting with 147gr RN New from Freedom Munitions, and cannot believe how much softer its recoil feels compared to the 115gr I have been shooting for a while now. My only concern is that it meets minimum power factor for IDPA, because I do not have a chronograph to test it myself. Anybody know? Thanks for the help.

While I load the Xtreme bullet, I have not shot any of the FM bulk ammo.
They CLAIM 890 fps, f=130.8
I think that is enough to go on for club matches but you need to check before you go to a sanctioned match with chronograph.

Surely you know somebody with a chronograph.

Most of their sponsored shooters shoot the 124HP or 147HP, both of which make minor at about 130.

What's strange is that I feel more recoil with their 124gr loads than I do with 115gr, but the 147gr feels A LOT softer than both.
