" I pressed them a little further to give me an oal of 1.50"
This is probably a typo but us guys who spent a long time measuring small parts
notice those things,these XTP bullets I don't use them at all,they are notched are they not?in any case have you tried factory loads?they work?I would check
my loads against what works and if there's no difference I'd go with (perish the
thought!)either what works or 230gr.FMJ RN.good luck
