Is there anyone out there that can measure, for me, the Cartridge Overall Length of the .380 Remington 102 grain Golden Saber factory cartridge.

I have received 1000 GS bullets for reloading from Midway today.

A Remington ballistic chart I found claims 940 fps in a 4 inch barrel with this cartridge. I want to duplicate that velocity using Power Pistol in my 4 inch Taurus 58HC Plus.

I would also appreciate anyone else’s reloading experience with this bullet.

Thanks up front,

Slip

My calipers say .946 for the overall cartridge length. LM

I just measured five 102gr Remington 380 factory rounds. They measured between .935 and .950. I would use .940-.945 as good. When I chronoed these loads a couple of years ago I got 929fps from a PPK.
