i'm so confused. i bought a g19 a little while back and started loading 9mm for it. previously i have been a 45 guy, and never had the trouble i am currently experiencing. i loaded about 300 rounds of 115 fmj over 4.2 grains of bullseye to an overall length of 1.150". this number was based on the overall lengths i measured from wwb and blaser brass factory loads for the same projectile. i had a few stoppages at the range, but i thought they were related to one of the mags i was using, as it seemed to happen mostly frequently with one particular 10 rounder i have. i sat down at the bench a little while ago, and cranked out about 50 rounds on my loadmaster. checking my overall length, and i had crept up about 0.010" to around 1.160". on a whim, i pulled a couple of load books out. hornady lists that load @ 1.100" and lyman has it at 1.090". i reseated one of my bullets to 1.085", and it doesn't look right at all. frankly, i am afraid that at that OAL, i am going to compress the powder, create a pressure spike and destroy my gun/hand. am i being paranoid? what is the deal with WWB and BB being loaded so long? i know max overall is 1.169", but i seriously wonder if my feeding issues weren't related to overly long cartridges (or very nearly so, anyway.) i've never had these issues while reloading 45 acp, and i have done piles of that. thoughts? -matt Wanna kill these ads?
