The ammo I have been shooting UMC 115gr TMJ/RN 9MM OAL is 1.10
I'm going to load some 115gr TMJ/RN (speer 3995) using WW231 4.8grs the Speer Manual states the OAL should be 1.135.
My pistol shoots the 1.10 stuff great. Do I need to change anything if I seat the bullet the same as the factory ammo 1.10? I know I could load some to 1.13 but there is over a foot of snow and I don't have the time right now to go to the only indoor to see if the 1.13 stuff feeds O.K.

9mm goes out to 1.169".

I say try the longer length (safety first) but don't load ten thousand before you test.....

Great,
I had decided load a few to the speer OAL and give it a try. If I reduce the OAL to much that will increase pressure and I don't want to test my pistols +P+ rating
I'll even do some near the 1.169 to see how my gun eats those. Thanks for the tip
