The current #13 Speer manual does indeed list the above loads for HS-6, these are not 2 recipes to be followed by rote but a start load and a maximum load. Work up to the maximum and don't go over. Speer lists the COAL at 1.120" with either the Gold Dot HP or the SP bullet.

Hmmmm.....upon closer inspection it lists the maximum cartridge length at 1.168" and TESTED length at 1.120" Why is that?

TESTED length at 1.120" Why is that?
Well, I'd say that's because hollow-point bullets often represent a "cut off" profile compared to FMJs, 'cause of the hole.

The ogive, forward curve, etc. can be too broad way out there in front for some HPs if loaded to max OAL.

I had some JHPs I loaded a bit long a year or two ago. Worked fine in one gun but wanted to hang up in another if I was ejecting an unfired round. I just popped 'em another .05 deeper and called it good. That happened to cure the 1 out of 200 rounds I was having hang up during feeding.

It's a geometry thing.
