For semiuatos, I neve use starting data. Instead, use avg. middle data from 2-3 sources, then go up & down 0.1gr & work to find your accuracy. Your OAL is fine depending on your bullet. I rarely load 9mm much longer than 1.135".
Thanks, especially for the OAL advice. That was one of my bigger questions, and one the manuals seem to have quite a range or variance on.
