I'm loading with 10mm 180gr JHP Zero Bullets. They're .610 long. I'd appreciate it if some of you guys with different bullet brands could tell me what length they are. Thanks.

That's valuable info. Should be a database somewhere, but I can't find one. Loading data is all over the place using different bullets. There's a big range of lengths. I load for revolver, so have some wiggle room in OAL, but don't have much to compare. I did find out that a 180 Golden Sabre is .640. That's a long bullet, and should have it's own data like you frequently see for XTPs.

Precision poly 185 and Hornady xtp hp 180 are both .610.

Thanks! Looks to me like the Zero is essentially an XTP knockoff. Tables show loads for XTPs about 5-7% lower than other jacketed bullets, and that's been my experience with the Zeros so far. Guess I need to use XTP tables with these things.
