The last time I saw the guy was a Hillsville a couple years ago. Not sure if they are still around.

God Bless,
Creeker

I just came across some Carroll 9mm, 124g FMJ projectiles. Can't find any load data specific for Carroll to start with. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.. I would have guessed so much. But from simple comparisons, the Carroll bullet is not the same length as others brands in my inventory. Thus loaded to the same OAL, the internal volume is different. That's where I am not sure what to do. Should I do some math and adjust the OAL to get the same internal volume for the given load. I also understand different mfg's have different thickness jackets which make the bullet more or less likely to deform in the barrel when fired which changes friction and pressure. I generally like to used load data from the bullet mfg rather than lets say the powder mfg. I was hoping to get a little more specific data to review.

Again... thanks anyway.

This can be a problem with such a small case. The math thing works for me..........Creeker
