Depends on which one, you didn't mention weight?

My Hornady 7th Edition manual says:

124 Grain = 1.060"
115 Grain = 1.075"
90 Grain = 1.070"

(for 9x19mm)

Thanks I have that manual and compared to the few loads I have loaded the bullet just seems seated a little to deep to me compared to my other rds of the same weight I have loaded both ball and HP. which is 1.124 col using GD HP 124gr HP and 124 gr ball

As long as the bullets are feeding properly and the neck tension is good, there should be no problem seating them out a bit further. The load data was likely worked up with the COAL they list, so increasing case capacity by seating further out may require a little bit more powder than what's in the manual to get similar muzzle velocity.

As always, start low and work up and use a chronograph.

Thanks I was loading 5.2 grs of Unique CCI 500 primers and col 1.124 . Unique web site says you can go up to 5.8 grs with a 124 gr GD HP. I just don't how you could go that high because the powder was compressed pretty good.
