Are bullets, bullets, and you can interchange them as long as they are the same weight and composition. For example, a 200 gr. LSWC and a 200 gr LRN? In other words, I have data for the LSWC at 5.1 grs Unique, can I safely load 5.1 grs with the LRN providing my oal is correct? Pistol is a new realm for me, been reloading rifle and shotgun for awhile, but I really don't want ot blow up my new P220.

5.1 grains Unique with a 200 grain lead bullet is a powder-puff starting load.
Bullet type will make no difference.

Only when you are approaching max loads with lead bullets, or jacketed ones, does bullet shape matter a whole lot.

providing my oal is correct?

OAL should be determined by your barrel not the load data. The listed OAL may not fit your weapon.

That said, I use your logic when loading different shaped bullets of the same weight. I load 200 gr LRN as low as 4.7 gr Unique. 5.3 gr is my current favorite. Shoots well out of all my 1911s'.
