Unless the Hornady bullet is abnormally squat for that weight and style, then 1.105" seems a bit short to me.
Hornady XTP bullets ARE "squat" and call for shorter loaded length than many other brands. (So are Sierras) All of the same caliber have the same truncated cone ogive, just different cylindrical bearing surface length in proportion to weight.

1.05" was a typo.

1.105" is the OAL data from the .jpg scan I have.
And that is one reason you must be VERY careful about taking load data at the "recipe" level off the internet. Few of us have proofreaders going over what we want to post.
