Question on pressure

Recommended Posts

Can I create too much pressure by sinking the bullet in the case..... yet still have low velocity? 

I'm new to reloading and the one piece of lacking information is the bullet specs. Cross referencing several sources doesn't help. My bullet is simply not listed so I have no idea how much bullet is in the case compared to the bullet in the load data I'm using. 

So I took the advice and started with a bit more COL and minimum charge weights. I'm pretty sure I have no pressure signs from the load I started with but it got me thinking. If velocity is lower than the load data suggests, could the pressure still be too high? Loading 9mm which can get pressure sensitive real quickly from what I read.
