Cartridge OAL HI CAP P14-45 Mag

1450 7
What is a good OAL for 200 gr LSWC bullets so they won't hang up in mags

I attended a match this past weekend in which I entered the Limited class. I proceeded to load the mags with the 200rds I reloaded the night before. Problem!

I loaded these 200gr Rainier TMJ's to 1.263" and had trouble loading more than 11-12 rds. The cases were actually denting! I figured the bullets were contacting the front of the mag body.

I had to change classes to Limited "10" because of this.

Para mags are longer front to back than most others. I feel (but can't prove it) that longer cartridges feed better. I load my 200 gr. lswc to 1.250, 230 gr. lrn to 1.265 and 250 gr. lead truncated cone pin loads to 1.195.
