    I was at the range today and got a chance to do a lot of Chrono work.
    I fires 4 different .32 Auto rounds through my Kel-Tec P-32 which has a 2.7" barrel.

    Here are the numbers:
    Fiocchi 60gr SJHP (Fiocchi claims 1200 fps)
    Av = 942.3 fps
    H = 959.3 fps
    L = 923.4 fps
    ES = 35.9 fps
    SD = 13.9 fps
    AD = 10.9 fps

    Fiocchi 73gr FMJ (Fiocchi claims 980 fps)
    Av = 741.5 fps
    H = 804.3 fps
    L = 689.5 fps
    ES = 114.8 fps
    SD = 47.0 fps
    AD = 38.8 fps

    CorBon 60gr JHP (CorBon claims 1050 fps)
    Av = 969.2 fps
    H = 982.5 fps
    L = 948.1 fps
    ES = 34.4 fps
    SD = 15.4 fps
    AD = 12.8 fps

    Winchester 60gr Silvertip HP (Winchester claims 970 fps)
    Av = 762.3 fps
    H = 779.0 fps
    L = 754.0 fps
    ES = 25.0 fps
    SD = 10.0 fps
    AD = 6.9 fps

    I hope someone finds this data useful. It looks like CorBon is very fast but from other tests posted on this forum, it does not expand. I will continue to carry Fiocchi 60gr SJHP rounds. I was very disappointed with the Winchester rounds and will no longer carry them in a 2.7" barrel pistol. This is disappointing, especially since I have 3 boxes of 50 on hand.

    Thanks for the info. It appears that you may have a slow p32 as your readings are somewhat slower, especially the fiocchi fmj. We chronied some fiocchi fmj (older mfg.) and got a little over 850 as I recall. I know the w/w is a wimpy round. We also got over 1,000 fps from the corbon. Your readings for the fiocchi 60gr. are on the money, but don't expect it to expand.

    I'm using a PACT Model 1 XP and I was a little surprised the Fiocchi FMJ came out like that. It was late when I did this test today and I had trouble getting 5 rounds to register. (I was losing light) I did over 2 hours of tests on all different handloads I made up before I finished up the the .32 Auto ammo.

    I'll retest all 4 and maybe so others if I get a hold of anything sometime soon.
