    Can somebody please tell me the overall cartridge length of a factory loaded Hornady 147 gr. XTP? I would also settle for the oal of any factory load using this bullet.
    Chronograph info would also be appreciated if available.

    According to Hornady #7, page 800 shows 1.100" for the 147 gr. HP-BT-XTP for 9mm Luger.

    Measured several Hornady 147gr TAP loads using the XTP bullet and they varied from 1.091" to 1.092".

    Thanks everyone for the info.
    I have about a thousand of these bullets that I picked up a couple of years ago from Midway during one their "blem" bullet sales. I haven't loaded much 9mm in this bullet weight and need to work up a load. Just needed to know the factory oal to use as a guide.

    1.142 is a great oal for various firearms it's the VV magic number for hot loads. I use that length for 147 Xtp and have great feeding and accuracy from sig, glock, eaa, 1911, keltec etc etc.

    I load my 147gr HP-XTP 9mm bullets at 1.125 OAL.
