    Interesting Range Data Camp 9

    I took a SR9c Ruger 9mm and a Marlin Camp 9mm with 147gr FMJ ammo made by the old bullet company National Bullet Company. These were just standard plinking rounds. Although at 50yds I did shoot a 1.25" five round group with the Camp 9.
    Data:
    SR9c Summary Camp 9 Summary
    Average Velocity 833fps 944fps
    Extreme Spread 44fps 152fps
    Average Deviation 3fps 43fps
    ME 226 lbs 291lbs
    Standard Deviation 8fps ? missed

    I believe with good handloaded 9mm 147gr these results would be much better. The purpose of this test was to see how the 3.5" barrel velocity compared with 16" barrel. Now I have to go get some good 147gr bullets and handload some really good rounds. As you can see I gained about 9 fps per inch. Ten rounds fired for each gun.

    Re: Interesting Range Data Camp 9

    You might try a lighter bullet too. Say a 124gr. The velocity and energy go through the roof. Marlin used to claim a 22% increase in velocity and a 50% increase in energy over the same round fired in a 4" barrel. Basically it becomes equal to a factory loaded .357 Magnum without the recoil or loud noise. I know that the 147 gr slugs lessen this effect. No such claim was made for the 45 version. Perhaps the 230 gr slug might have had something to do with that.

    Thanks for posting. Keep us informed.

    Re: Interesting Range Data Camp 9

    The reason I was using the 147gr was the bearing surface of the longer round vs the 124gr. I figured the accuracy would be better and after finding a round in Lyman's 49th edition for the rifle Camp 9 @ 1150fps Me this would give me about 400 lbs Me and why would I ever need more than that a 50yds with the penetration of the 147gr. Anyway that was my thinking.

    would you post the data for that hot 147gr load for the benefit of the other Camp 9 owners here?
