I didn't measure the length before sizing. I'll check another one tonight.
Based in the 18.8gr post-sizing measurement, QuickLoad thinks that 14.6gr AA9 is 122% compressed. With Clark's information that AA9 is essentially uncompressible, I find this load to be a near impossibility.
It seems like I see 110% compression being talked about as a rough estimate of where things start getting dicey with the bullet being pushed back out and even case deformation issues. I can't see 122% of most any powder being practical, say nothing of one that doesn't compress.
Although.... It also thinks the standard 13.0gr charge is 117% compressed. Maybe QL's VWD for AA9 is off.
