"....Generally shorter or longer?"
I've been reloading for all things that go BANG since '65. I've never even looked to see what a book OAL might be, but I'm of a wholly different era. Fact is, few data sources in those days even suggested an OAL nor did we care. Without dial calipers, we experimented with seating until we found what worked and developed our charge; we lived and our ammo was good.
