Chronoed the Hornady rounds yesterday from Mark VI (bout 5 in barrel)
av vel = 574 fps
low = 547 fps
high = 590 fps
Box listed velocity = 680 fps
They shot left bout 4 in, high bout 6 in from 25 yds. They appeared to group well (bout 3 in @ 25 yds), although tough to distinquish from my own ability with this pistol. SA pull is over 8 lbs and ain't used to the trigger. Believing i am breaking left , at let off.
Should be getting better with this pistol, after developing decent hand load, and getting used to trigger.
Have a handload for the Mark I owned, but the Mark I has a shaved cylinder for 45 AR. Am very wary bout shooting the Mark I much, due to it's age (bout 1892). It does shoot very well with 200 gn lrnfp, will try them in Mark VI.
