    If they plunk, I’d shoot them. If anything, load some at the different OAL, verify plunk, then see if any accuracy/feeding differences at the range between the two. OAL diff might be due to subtle bullet profile differences, or just what the source happened to settle on. Your particular gun is often more important, it’s not written in stone. Unless you are loading at max pressure where a shorter OAL could actually push you over then no way would I pull those.

    You might find no difference at all, or one OAL might be significantly more accurate or feed more reliably. Trial and error within safe parameters is part of it.

    It may be that this COL was decided upon by Speer in their testing, but who knows what powder and charge weight they used? What powder and charge weight does Hornady use, if both list the same powders, of course?

    Man…don’t pull those. 1.1xx is plenty for 115 gr whatever 9mm. I’d shoot them.
