Anyone loading these for a 9mm? Hornady col of 1.10 seems really deep in the case to me. compared to other 9mm.
Any comments?
Loading on a Dillon 550B, dillon dies, that I am just setting up.

I reload 147 Berry’s, X-treme and Zero JHP to 1.160” with great results.  Start there and see how they function in your carbine.  FWIT, I load those bullets over 3.5gr of Titegroup.  They are very quiet and accurate being shot of a short barrel and suppressor combo.

At the recommended seating the case is just shy of where the bullet starts to descend to the ogive.
they look quite a bit shorter than other 9mm, when seated at recommended length.

If you load them long you may have issues with the bullet ogive/shoulder hitting the throat in the chamber. It really is going to depend on what gun you are shooting them  in.  Something like a Gen5 Glock or CZ with a short throat is going to require shorter length than a generous subgun chamber.

Make a dummy round, no primer or powder, and check the OAL you want to load for feeding and extraction.

That's how you figure out OAL in semi auto pistols.

Yep, dry nailed it.

For my M&P's and 147gr Blue Bullets, I have to be at 1.08".  Similar to what my friends load for their CZ's.  I only load to 3.2gr of Titegroup, so I'm at the lowest recommended powder charge for 147gr bullets.

Another fan of AA-7 with the 147 xtp. Extremely accurate.
