    I don't have a reloading manual at the moment and I was hoping someone could help me out with an OAL for this bullet in .45, 230 grain, please. Thanks.

    1.235 O.A.L. for 200 or 230 Gr .45 XTP

    I usually load my XTPS at 1.245" (usually the 200gr bullet).

    Depending on your particular firearm, you might have to experiment some to find what performs and feeds best in your arm.

    I like 1.225" for 185 grain .45 ACP Hornady XTPs, but that's just me. 185 grain fare is enough to get noticed SERIOUSLY. cliffy

    I had trouble with misfeeds if I loaded to anything @ or longer than 1.230" so I load to 1.225" .

    My book from "Load Books, USA" says 1.230" for the Hornady XTP & that's what I started with but dropped 0.005" and everythings worked much better.
