I got a spec sheet from Winchester's website for the .40 JHPs I use. Per the sheet, the OAL is 1.110. I checked several of the .40 rounds that have been chambered repeatedly, and they came in at that spec. However, I did find one round that came in at 1.100. It looks more beat up than the others, so I suspect that one was chambered more than the others. That one round has been set off to the side - it's not worth risking my weapon or my hand.

Aux Bear, thanks for staring this thread!
