    Understand a hollow-point is a FMJ with the nose cut-off and cannot be seated to the same OAL as a FMJ
    It's the bullet ogive:

    Yessir--and this goes double for the 9mm Luger. EVERY component, every pistol, and dimensions of those elements can differ in this caliber. Consistency? C'MON, MANG--in 9mm, that is the last refuge of the unimaginative. Make haste slowly, if you are new to the 9mm refilling game.
    I don't paint bullets. I like Black Rifle Coffee. Sacred cows are always fair game. California is to the United States what Syria is to Russia and North Korea is to China/South Korea/Japan--a Hermit Kingdom detached from the real world and led by delusional maniacs, an economic and social basket case sustained by "foreign" aid so as to not lose military bases.
