can i shoot my slightly shorter than desired 9mm loads?

I loaded up some 125grain conical projectiles and there are about 10 in the lost that are measuring in at 1.118 instead of the 1.125 that i was loading them to.

Should these be ok to fire or should i pull them?

Thanks.

I should add these are for 9mm for what it's worth.

If you are worring about 0.007 then don't, don't worry that is. They are fine. You didn't say what powder or how much. But if you started low and are working up, then don't worry.

Just finished 100 9mm 125 grain RMR JHP (bulk bullets) at a OAL of 1.090 with 4.7 grains of Win 231 (near max load).

Even if you were using a ridiculously fast powder like Clays or Red Dot, .007" won't matter unless you were on the verge of blowing up your gun @ 1.125" It might raise the pressure 1000 psi but probably less. If you were using 158 grain bullets, it would be different.
