Going the chronology tomorrow ands need some loads for 147gr minor with N320 for my 2011.
Should I maximize the OAL to maybe?

I'm loading 3.3 grains of N320 under a 147 grain BBI to 1.123 for 133 PF out of a 5" KKM barreled Cheely.

I generally load 9mm to run across multiple platforms. My sti eats them really well so I haven’t bothered loading long.

I’ve been shooting 147gr Xtreme RN over 3.3 N320 at 1.15... shoots super soft.

Great info guys. Wondered about longer OAL's. Pros? Cons? Doesn't seem to matter?

Longer oal might help in feeding for a 2011. It should lower the pressure a little also but may take a little more powder to make the same velocity.

In theory you should get better feeding when the bullet has less distance to travel to hit the feed ramp.

I've got a list of 147's (coated and jacketed) and Blues TC 135s with VV n320 with mostly longer OALs that I chrono'd a couple of weeks ago. Hit me in PM and I'll send you the spreadsheet if you want it. Was all out of a 5" 2011
