Results for the Federal stuff out of Ruger GP100 4" barrel:

Federal 125gr SJSP 1488, 1477, 1415, 1413, 1441. Average = 1446.8 FPS/ 580.87 LBS. This I do believe is the strongest big maker 125 to date. Kevin's 125 and DoubleTap beat it but big maker this is the strongest!
Federal 180gr Swift A-Frame 1197, 1165, 1159, 1160, 1180. Average = 1172.1 FPS/ 548.97 LBS. Pretty good I think.

Results for the Federal .44 Magnums Ruger Redhawk 7.5" barrel:

Federal 280gr Swift A-Frame 1227, 1213, 1168, 1196, 1209. Average = 1202.6 FPS/ 898.98 LBS. Guess they slow it down a bit for the bullet design.
Federal 300gr Castcore 1282, 1295, 1295, 1307, 1288. Average = 1293.4 FPS/ 1114.14 LBS Didn't feel that bad but numbers say it is strong!

Seemed pretty good from what I could see. Federal makes some pretty darn good Magnum rounds!
