9MM and .40 S&W Velocity Evaluation
By
Wes Howe
March 5, 2005

The following is velocity information, from some of the current defensive loads, available for the 9MM and .40 S&W. It is compiled, in the hopes, that those without chronographs will have information aiding in the selection of defensive handgun ammunition. This list is not all inclusive, but features ammunition and bullet weights/designs that are performing well, in actual shootings.

Test Weapons

9MM: Browning Hi Power Cylinder & Slide Custom
Barrel: Bar-Sto 4

Wes,

Thanks for sharing your data. Not all of us have access to a chronograph and it is instructive to note the velocities. A nice piece of work.

Thanks Again,
