Quick range report. A friend of mine wanted to chronograph some of his new hand loads for his 45SACP. I figured while we were going to the range and setting up my chronograph I would chronograph some factory loads through my XD-40’s

All the following data measured using a Chrony Alpha Chronograph with the additional light kit for indoor use. The first gate was about 3 ft ahead of the muzzle. My XD-40 Tactical has about 1000 rds through it and was using a Don's guide rod and 16# spring. My XD-40 Service has a bit over 2000 rds through it and was using all stock parts.

Would be intreresting to find out how much futher they drop in the 3" .40sc on my side. May have to make a trip to the range w/ the chrono now.

Any other factors (temp/humidity) you have from the day would be great.

Thanks.
