Bullet Length 224 and 308
I have found the bullet stability calculator spreadsheet (link below) useful, for example, in predicting that Hornady 75 gr BTHP will stabilize in a 1:9" twist barrel. I tried the spreadsheet and it said yes. I tried the bullets and they shot very well at long range (400 yards+).
Now, I want to apply that calculation to other bullets, BEFORE I buy them. The trouble is I need to know the length of those bullets, but can not measure them, since I don't own them, and do not want to, unless I know they will stabilize.
So, I checked Sierra and Hornady's websites hoping to find published bullet lengths to no avail. I also have Sierra's reloading manual sections for these calibers, but that also does not include projectile length.
I am NOT asking about C.O.A.L. I need the projectile length.
So, my question is: Is anyone aware of a table of bullet lengths?
Next best would be actual measured lengths for any or all of these:
Sierra #'s 2155, 2210, 2165, 2230, 9390
Hornady #'s 22832, 22792

The last number in each line is bullet length in inches.

Here's another pretty good source. Data includes length, weight, SD and BC of nearly 3900 bullets.
FWIW, the webpage says "All bullet information is kindly provided by the manufacturers of QuickLoad."
