1.238 oal

I inadvertently made up a couple of mild loads with a 1.238 OAL, 180 grain H.C. over 9.0 grains of AA#7.

Opinions please.

Should I go ahead and shoot them or pull the bullet?

I don't know how ho 9 grains of #7 is over 180 gr. H.C. bullets (since I don't use those components)

I will just say that the two batches of Double tap ammo that I measured were all at 1.24" COAL , which is pretty close to what you have there.

I would just pull them and seat them again at the spec IMHO.

Would it be ok to put the round in a bullet puller, smack it until it's back over 1.26, and reseat it to the proper length?

On a side note, I have (2) boxes of DT 200gr WFNGC's that measure 1.245

Good idea Meathead, I'll give that a try, shouldn't take but a light tap, otherwise I think I'll pull them.

I "wouldn't think" being 12/1000" of an inch short would make a large difference in pressure on an already very mild load...but then again, I don't know for sure and with reloading no need to take an unnecessary chance.

It was a good idea Meathead, took all of 2 minutes to fix it.
