Test Weapon: Colt Python 4" barrel revolver
Test Load: Winchester .357 Magnum 110 gr. JHP (White Box)
Distance: 10 ft.

Test Results 5 shot string: 1253, 1278, 1350, 1299, 1255 fps.

High: 1350 fps.
Low : 1253 fps.
Avg : 1278 fps.
The difference between the High and Low seemed quite substantial,but chrono seemed to be working just fine with other loads tested.

That's less than the speed Evan was getting out of the Corbon 110 .38 Special in a 2" barrel.

Yes it was disappointed the performace of this .357 Magnum.
Even more if we see the Corbon 38 spl +P+ was made with a 2 inches barrel revolver and the .357 Winchester was made with a 4 inches revolver.

Winchester says this load does 1295. In this test it averaged 1278. Corbon web site says the .38 spl.+P 110 gr. does 1250 from a 2 1/2" barrel. Evan got 1368-1448 from a short barrelled Ruger SP101. Velocities from short barreled S&W's and Colts and etc. will most likely be slower. I've noticed for a long time now that velocities from Ruger revolver barrels are faster than others. Also, the Corbon round is about double the price of the Winchester round. I like the Winchester load because it is easy to control.

people need to remember the velocities can vary singificantly between two of the same models with the same barrel length. Additionally, ammo mfgs loads to pressure not velocity so reults from different lots of the same load can also vary singificantly.
