Maybe someone who uses that bullet will drop in and tell you their OAL but here is some "teach a man to fish" type advice. Accurate's manual says it best,

It is important to note that the SAAMI “COL” values are for the firearms and ammunition manufacturers industry and must be seen as a
guideline only.
The individual reloader is free to adjust this dimension to suit their particular firearm-component-weapon combination.
This parameter is determined by various dimensions such as 1) magazine length (space), 2) freebore-lead dimensions of the barrel, 3)
ogive or profile of the projectile and 4) position of cannelure or crimp groove.

So even if someone came by and told you what they use it doesn't mean it will work for your gun, over even be best for your gun. I would recommend finding the maximum length OAL your gun will chamber, the maximum length your magazine will hold and the maximum length that will feed reliably and go with the shortest of the three. With a SWC bullet it will most likely be shorter than what you will find in reloading manuals for a RN bullet of the same weight.
New gun, same ol' shot.
