LOA 45 ACP and 9mm
« on: December 21, 2011, 10:13:05 AM »
Can anybody tell me what the length over all is for a 45 ACP round, and a 9mm round?  I'm kicking around some ideas on drum mags...

The 45 ACP case length: 0.898", maximum C.O.L. = 1.275" and the 9X19mm Luger max. case length: 0.754", maximum C.O.L. =1.169". This from Hornady 7th edition handbook.
