This is an example of what I'd consider beneficial information.  ;)

Mr, 1SOW...

You interested in lead bullet data for this compilation?
I had the right to remain silent...

Painter,  I'll post any bullet lengths of interest to the forum members;  but I'm not smart about loading lead.  I suspect diameters and composition play a roll in determining seating depth.  I really DON't know if comparing lengths of an assortment of various brands, weights and diameters of lead bullets benefit our lead reloaders.  If it does,  I'll post them.   All I'm going to post is bullet length info..

I personally, am unlikely to be loading anything but jacketted and plated.  You "fully leaded, high octane" guys can choose yea or nay.  ;)

The same thing applies to lead as jacketed. I say post it up.

Brand new bullet.   Just out from SNS.

SNS Coated
125 RN  .583

Bullets had an ES of .005".   A little better than I've been seeing.   Push test was 1.1.   Most were a little over 1.11.   But one was 1.096 so I will load these at 1.085.

OK, so if this Excel sheet is ready to go we should post it as a sticky. Maybe the easy way is to post it as a PDF for printing.

Comments ?  Ideas ?

LIKE.
A comment that the OALs and seating depths listed are "examples"  might be a good idea.

5 of my Speer 124 GDs averaged .561"  Didn't know they'd be that inconsistent.  I'm just using a digital caliper,  but have two different brands that agree.
Record shows:  1.140" oal,  .169"  seating depth     :-\

No one has posted here for the past 4 months, so I may be the only one interested in this question but here goes................

Does anyone have any length info for Rainier bullets?  They're often listed in published load data, and I'd like to make the conversion for my Berry's or X-TREME bullets.  I'm assuming they are similar in length???
