Any one shooting a Kel-tec pistol in 223 rem with the 9.2 inch barrel? I picked one up the other day to use for varmints.  I plan on using HornadyV-max 40 gr ammo and it is rated at 3800 fps with a 24 inch barrel so I figure somewhere between 32 and 34 hundred fps muzzle velocity if I am lucky. I don't have a chrono at present and wondered if I am off on my estimates to work out a ballistics table any help appreciated.

2800 is probably closer with the most incredible muzzle blast you have yet to behold.  If you reload try using a faster powder reduced load -- something like 4227 - vel will be the same but it will be tolerable.  tell her the challenge is in the reloading

Thanks Dale I though the numbers I heard was somewhat optimistic, they offer a muzzle brake too. That would probable scare off every coyote in 10 miles
