Not all barrels are created equal, chronographs don't always agree with each other and atmospheric conditions affect velocities. That being said, we believe that you can expect to get at least 1,380 fps out of a 7.5" barrel, maybe a little more. Our 7.5" Blackhawk got an average velocity of 1,396 fps.
