I ran a few rounds across my trusty Shooting Chrony when I went target shooting today--here's the results (taken about 6 feet from muzzle): XDS S/N xxx24: Remington 230 gr. FMJ green box: 789, 782, 804, 806 fps Hornaday 185 Gr. Critical Defense: 955, 962 fps XDS S/N xxx28: Remington 230 gr. FMJ Green Box: 761, 780, 780, 782 Hornaday 185 Gr. Critical Defense: 959, 968 Both rounds fed with complete reliability; I tried one 5 round magazine with alternating FMJ and HP rounds and it ran through without a hiccup. I note that the velocity on the Critical Defense load is very close to factory spec for a 3" barrel.
