Federal American Eagle 45 acp fmj (averages)

H & K Compact 3.8 inch barrel - 824 fps
S & W 1911 5 inch barrel - 844 fps
Springfield Range Officer 5 inch barrel - 791 fps
Kimber compact sst 4 inch barrel - 797 fps
S & W 4506 5 inch barrel - 838 fps
S & W 645 5 inch barrel - 839 fps
S & W 745 5 inch barrel - 843 fps

I have never shot the PMC ammo or if I did I didn't chronograph it. I think the Winchester Service Grade and the SIG 45 acp fmj ammo is pretty good stuff. I haven't chronographed them because I'm getting to lazy to take the chronograph out and see how they do. I have shot a lot of the Federal ammo and it is pretty good stuff also

I got to looking through my chronograph records again and as it turns out I have shot the PMC 45 acp fmj

H & K Compact 3.8 inch barrel - 745 fps average
S & W 1911 5 inch barrel - 769 fps average
Kimber Compact sst 4 inch barrel - 724 fps average

as I now remember I wasn't impressed with the numbers as compared to the Federal American Eagle
