    Hello Everyone,

    Where can I find the Max. Case Overall Length???? I have the minimum in my manual but not the Max.

    Your manual should have the maximum case length and the trim-to length.

    Most manuals have "Max length" and "trim to length" . If the "trim to" is not listed it is usually .010 less than Max. What manual are you using.

    I have a Lyman Manual, but right now I'm using one of the Alliant Powder Manuals. I'm using Bullseye Powder made by Alliant so I figured using their book might be more helpful. But I'm yet to find the Max. Overall Length on it.

    Thanks, ABL

    Max OAL

    Max OAL is really determined by the firearm chamber length, magazine length, or cylinder length and is best determined by trial and error as to what works and what does not work(read feeds and ejects properly and reliably).
