    OAL for truncated .40 S&W

    I'm loading up some truncated jacketed .40 S&W using accurate #2. The load data I have has FMJ OAL but nothing listed for truncated jacketed bullets. Anyone happen to have that info?

    Thanks

    The way i check my 9 rounds is: dry cycle a mag full of random rounds out of the 100 I load, then with the action open and locked,drop another mag full of loaded rounds into the chamber,seat with thumb pressure,tilt the pistol up and gravity should let the round fall out. This is a go no go test for my pistol and reloads. Havent had any trouble yet. *I cannot recommend this to any other person due to liability factors, use this method at your own risk. : ) Good luck .

    What bullet weight are you using? Here's what I have:
    135gr start 6.8 max 7.6 1097fps 1247fps NOS JHP OCL=1.250
    150gr start 6.3 max7.0 1016fps 1155fps SIE JHP OCL=1.120
    155gr start 5.6 max 6.2 968fps 1100fps BRY RS OCL=1.250
    165gr start 5.4 max 6.0 916fps 1041fps SIE JHP OCL=1.250
    180gr start 4.3 max 4.8 794fps 903fps RAN HP OCL=1.250

    Thats all the data I have. Hope this helps.
