I need a favor. I can't find my Speer #13 anywhere. I need to find the minimum OAL for their 225 grain JHP .45 ACP. I would highly appreciate your help.

Thanks!

That's awful short ... but that's what it says. Lyman #47 shows 1.243" OAL for a 225 gr JHP. My Nosler #3 only shows loads for 185 gr and 230 gr bullets. Hodgdon #25 doesn't give OAL/COL. All my other manuals are lent out.

Thanks Bud

1.200 is perfect. I was loading 1.195 before but wanted to be absolutely sure.

Thanks!

It seemed too short to me, too, so I checked the Speer Number TWELVE and it shows the same COL of 1.200 for the "45 Mag-JHP" bullet.

Best,
