    I´ve just made 1500 perfectly good boolits out of this mold and will be loading them up soon. But it has been difficult to find data on OAL for this boolit. Anyone who uses it that could help me please? I´ll be using W231.

    Just load to under the maximum OAL of 1.275". Remove you barrel and use it as a cartridge gauge to insure proper seating. Hust drop in and make sure it is flush to the end of the chamber. :)

    Just ran downstairs and measured a round. I have mine loaded to an overall length of 1.185". This length gave me the best reliability with this bullet. I load these bullets over 4.7 gr of bullseye.
