All results gathered at 73 degrees F with an F1 Chrony.

1991 Colt 45 ACP. 7.1 gr. Power Pistol, 230 FMJ, WLP.
842, 829, 864, 847, 854 Fps. Hot and Accurate.

CZ75 Clone 9mm. 5.2 gr. WW231, 115 gr. JHP, WSP.
1178, 1096, 1246, 1109, 1175 Fps. Hard to judge accuracy, it wasn’t my gun.

Remington 1917 (30-06) with original barrel. 49 gr. IMR4895 (95ptn pulled), 150 gr FMJ, LC68 Match Brass, WLR.
2775, 2747, 2701, 2706, 2656 Fps. Just what I expected, Mil spec. velocity and tack driving accuracy. This is the NRA recipe for Mil spec and it looks like they are right on the money

All the rest are out of my 1943 Springfield Garand (30-06) with original barrel.

49 gr IMR4895 (95ptn pulled), 150 gr. FMJ, LC68 Match Brass, WLR.
2568, 2594, 2663, 2610, 2586 Fps. The NRA Recipe again. Very accurate. What a difference a gas port makes. This barrel is beginning to show some wear, that could account for the velocities.

Lake City 1969 (LC69) Ball 150 grain.
2566, 2551, 2493, 2520, 2506 Fps. Just a tad under the NRA recipe out of the Garand.

Lake City M72 Match Lot number 12253. 173 gr FMJ.
2583, 2533, 2505, 2506, 2514 Fps. The box says the velocity should be 2640 Fps.

P.Graham: Thanks for this post! It's always interesting to see the results of others reloading efforts. I've been delayed in getting to chrono the results of my Alliant PowerPistol loads in .40S&W due to the weather. Hopefully soon. Thanks again and stay safe.
