    Are 124gr Rounds Shorter than 147gr?

    Is the over all length of a 124gr 9mm round shorter than a 147gr round? Does anyone have a couple on hand they could measure for me? I would greatly appreciate it. I'm wondering specifically about Speer Gold Dots.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    According to the Speer Reloading manual #12

    The 9mm 124gr GDHP should have a COL of 1.120 inches
    The 9mm 147gr GDHP should have a COL of 1.130inches

    Not perceptible but there is slight difference in the Speer.
