I will give the shorter OAL a try next weekend on a few rounds and see how they work out. It isn't a huge issue, and isn't as bad as sooting I have seen on my scavenged brass at the range. I just think I can make it bit cleaner.
I am going for lower PF loads so want to stick at or just over 1050 to make the 130PF which I will use for USPSA and IDPA both. No sense in having 2 different loads.
I am going to drop down in 0.010" increments and see what I get. Worst case, I just use the 1.158" I am now, and deal with it. Definitely not a "deal-breaker"
