All Chrono data was measured by a LabRadar Doppler Chronograph and the data was pulled from the strings saved to its SD card

All target measurements were done with OnTarget Precision Calculator software.


 

The PPU 69gr shot an average of 2515.81 fps between the 60 shots fired. PPU 69gr had a fairly average velocity and had an Averaged Standard Deviation over 6 series of 10 shots of 32.58 FPS which was the highest SD of all the ammo’s tested. The graph below shows the shot to shot velocity of each string and also the average of each string at the end (data point 11).
