Popular 9mm Bullet Lengths
« on: March 15, 2014, 08:41:47 PM »
Moderator Note
Gentlemen, we are still seeking 9mm bullet length data to add to this listing. The very first post has been edited to contain all the information suggested on the next 5 pages. To calculate the bullet seating depth of a 9x19 Luger cartridge use this formula...
[Bullet Length + 0.745] - Cartridge OAL



I've found knowing various bullet lengths useful in developing new loads by type (Plated/Jacketed), weight, nose shape and a known seating depth for that weight bullet.

If other Manufacturers, weights and types of of bullet are posted,  I'll try to add to this list----or not. :D

Guys,  do me a favor as formatting this is a PITA.  I'm clumsy with the computer at the best of times.
Provide your info , single spaced, "Weight"--number only (124), Nose type (RN), Length (.XXX)   
EG.:  Berry's, 
124 RN    .XXX"
130 FP     .XXX"

After I add your enties to the first post,  please double check them for accuracy.  The modify page doesn't always format the same when save is hit. ::)   

Good stuff to have available.

Riptide,

Can you check your Berry's HP again?  I'm out of them now, but sure thought they were shorter than that.  I wonder if they were .590" instead of .690".

I'm gpoing from memory of 9 sample bullets,  and I believe you're correct.  They weren't near that long.

I just type and that doesn't leave any spare brain matter.  :-[ :D

Be careful saving too soon.  Some corrections will come.
We need confirmation on the Berry's 124JHP now.

Blue Bullet Coated
125 RN    .606"
147 FP     .665"

These had more bullet to bullet variation than I've seen before.   RN were .600 to .612.   FP were .662 to .670.   Nothing else I've checked had more than a .004" ES for 10 bullets.

That is a LOT of length variation.
