Random OAL measurements on new factory ammo

Postby GoesBang » Sat Oct 18, 2014 1:50 pm

I randomly measure three different cartridges: All FMJ. All 9mm. 3 different brands.

Can you guess the brands by measurement?

Sorry, I can not. It is based upon my unfamiliarity of commercially available ammunition. I reload for every rife (3 calibers), shotgun (3 gauges), pistol (4 calibers) and revolver (4 calibers) I own. The only exception is anything rim fire. :D

All three of those are within SAAMI specs for 9mm Luger ammo. But, given the measurements of magazines some people report, the short one may function better in many CPX's.

It's not the blast that kills you - It's the tumble to the bottom of the 800 foot crater.....
