Had a chance to chronograph some ammo out of my 6.5" barreled AR.

62gr Am Eagle - 1861 fps
55gr UMC - 1939 fps
45gr Rem Varmint - 2302 fps

Anyone else have velocity data for other barrel lengths, specifically 7.5"?

Hmmmmm

You are reporting velocity diferences of ca 130 fps per inch when moving from 10.5" to 7.5" barrel length. Yet my 6.5" velocity data is roughly 400 fps slower than your 7.5" velocities with the same bullet weight.

I suspect that the velocity change is not linear per inch as the barrel gets shorter.

Your velocities ate low even for a 6.5" barrel.
