Hello All,

If anybody has one of these 220gr. 358 Speer bullets, I would be very grateful if you could get a measurement from the cannelure to the base of the bullet.

Thanks!


Regards,

Hi, Contender:
  I don't have one handy, but by comparing the pictures in Speer's manual of it and the 180 and a 180 on hand, I get about .445" from the cannelure centre to the base. The 180's cannelure is about .040 - .045" wide.

Bye
Jack

Contender, I pulled a couple Speer 220's out to measure.  Given a little slop for tired eyes, they measure .448 from the base to the bottom of the cannelure.  Overall length measures at 1.023 and the cannelure is about .040 wide.  Hope this helps.  Ed

Thanks Gents!

I'm comparing seating depths with a few cast bullets with some jacketed bullets and didn't have one of these on hand. Interpolating some load data I have for a wildcat I'll report on later.

Best Regards,
