    Hey guys, I'm thinking about getting a G27 for CCW, but I don't know too much about .40, and how it acts in a 3.43" barrel, so do you guys have any numbers on velocity/energy for different calibers? I am not so worried about it, but I'd just like to know.

    Thanks!

    Some posted the DoubleTap's ammo actually chrono'd slightly lower in their Glocks.

    Still, it should give you a good reference comparison.

    For me, I load 165/180 gr Remington Golden Saber Bonded JHP in my carry G27.

    SG Ammo usually has good prices on factory JHP:

    180 gr Federal HST - 1015 fps - 50/$19.95
    180 gr Federal HydraShok - 1000 fps - 50/$21.95
    165 gr Remington GS BJHP - 1150 fps - 25/$10.95
    180 gr Remington GS BJHP - 1015 fps - 25/$13.95
