    Over all length

    I don't reload so I don't have access to any reloading manuals. I was wondering if someone could give me a OAL range for .357Sig? I'm kind of concerned about some possible set back on some ammo I have. Thanks

    OAL. I assume you are asking for the overall length of the cartridge.

    Overall Length = 28.96 mm (1.140")
    Case Length = 21.97 mm (0.865")

    If your looking at bullet setback, you need to know the bullet weight and type. Obviously a jhp is shorter then a fmj bullet. Usually, heaver bullets are longer. Bullet material (lead, jacketed, plated) also makes a difference in seating length. examples (all min OAL):
    90gr fmj 1.090
    115gr lead 1.140
    124gr jhp 1.120
    130gr copper plated 1.201
    147gr xtp 1.140

    Thank you. I knew enough to know there would be a range, not just a set number. Once again thanks for the info.
