Got some at home. They load to the same OAL as the 200 & 230gr, same nose profile.anyone have any 185 gr XTP .451 bullets laying around and a caliper??
Just trying to see how long that bullet is? If you have the base to ogive measurement via a comparator set I would greatly appreciate that data as well.
Thanks ahead of time.
I was actually hoping to get the measurements to compare the bullet to the mag tech 185 gr gold gaurdians I'm loading using some XTP data.Got some at home. They load to the same OAL as the 200 & 230gr, same nose profile.
I'll dig them up & get you a measurement if no one comes back first.I was actually hoping to get the measurements to compare the bullet to the mag tech 185 gr gold gaurdians I'm loading using some XTP data.
just trying to be sure the mag techs aren't exceptionally short or long and vice versa on the xtp's.
thanks a lot. that's exactly what I needed.I use the 185 grain XTP's in a practice load that is matched to the ballistics of a 185 grain Speer Gold Dot, so I always have several boxes on hand. BTW, powder charge is 10.0 grains of AA #5 with an overall length of 1.230 inch. Out of my 5 inch Ruger SR1911 this load yields 1050 fps.
Overall length is 0.540 inch and the base to ogive length is 0.220 inch.
I just enjoy the added security of knowing another variable in the loaded round has been addressed before that first trigger pull.
That's good to know , I was under the impression pistol cases bc of being straight walled were very sensitive along the lines of pressure with seating depth. I guess it's more the case in 9mm and 40.
the old xd 45 4" isn't picky at all on coal. it's been a great gun.
cool, that's what I've read too. I always take special care with the 40s. I guess it also has something to do with the area the wider bullet (40) covers in such a small case.
One of the manuals, Lyman or Speer actual have that warning for 9mm about seating depth and disregard to mention it about 40. it blows my mind why they did that and bc Of that I have people (ignorant people) referencing that telling I'm wrong about the 40 being that pressure sensitive and it's only a concern in 9mm. I say good luck with your hands lol and keep going.
