Bullet length chart

I'm a 60 yr. old newbie to this forum. I'm fairly new to reloading too. Does anyone know if there is a chart that lists the bullet lengths of popular brand name bullets. For example I have some 200gr Berry's 45acp hp's. To load to a good COL, if I knew the lengths of xtp's, gold dots,etc. this would be handy......Thanks Al

Both Hornady and Speer show all those dimensions in the manuals, along with a lot of other great info and data. If you haven't picked up a copy or three, you might want to - good books!
