ASK

LEE
Ask Lee

Q: I mistakenly ordered Berries 9mm 124gn FN bullets instead of HP bullets. Although they case gauged just fine, they wouldn't chamber in my Sig Sauer 226 or 229. I do like to work at as close to the max COL as possible. Maybe you could make a case gauge that is more like a 9mm chamber?

A: Although they are the same caliber and mass, the profiles are probably quite different. And since you were seating at max COL with the HP bullets, the FN bullets are being seated long enough to contact the bore before the case headspaces. The bullet manufacturer's and powder manufacturer's load data sheets usually specify a recommended "Load To" length.

In lieu of a load data sheet, or arbitrarily reducing COL until they chamber, you can refer to the SAAMI chamber specifications and use the procedure below to calculate a workable COL.
NOTE: I highly recommend having a copy of the SAAMI specs for every cartridge you load. They are free to download at SAAMI.org.

  1. Make a handful of dummy cartridges with the bullets seated longer than SAAMI Spec COL but don't crimp them.
  2. Chamber them one at at time. They may be too long to feed from your magazine so just manually load them into the chamber and then close the slide. The bullet will contact the rifling and be seated deeper in the case as the slide closes.
  3. Eject them carefully onto a thick towel or pillow so that the bullet seating depth is not altered.
  4. Measure the COL of each round. This gives you the COL to contact the rifling. But do not load ammo to this length as you must have a minimum of 0.002″ off the rifling to avoid a pressure spike.
  5. Now refer to the SAAMI chamber specs for your cartridge and look for the specified distance from max headspace dimension (0.776″ for 9mm Luger) to the rifling lead (0.8113″ for 9mm Luger) and then divide by 2 (yields 0.017″ for 9mm Luger). SliX-SizerNow deduct that from the COL measured from the dummy rounds to get the final COL. That will yield a reasonable COL that should chamber easily, feed from magazines and be backed off from the rifling enough to avoid a pressure spike.

Considering the time it takes to perform this procedure, you may be better off to just wait until you can get the powder or bullet manufacturer's load data sheet.
