Default velocity of Double Tap .380 ammo?

Recently bought some 95 gr. JHP Double Tap ammo for my LCP, (Buffalo Bore just a little too much for the LCP) . Double Tap claims 975 fps from a 2.5" barrel. Have not been able to run it through a chronograph, but did compare to 90 gr. Cor-Bon ( which runs about 970 fps through the LCP) in a very limited test into some phone books. The Double Tap had about about 1 1/2" more penetration and fully expanded. The Cor-Bon did not perform as well.
Just wondering if anybody has verified the claimed velocity of DT's 975 fps through 2.5" barrel and 1080 fps through 3.5" barrel?
Thanks in advance, Dgang
