HP/XTP Hornady Bullets

I am reloading the above and looking for OAL information using Alliant Power Pistol at 5.1grns with the 147grn HP/XTP Hornady Bullets. Anybody know where to locate? I have found XTP in the Lee book but not HP/XTP in that one or the Lyman book.

Use the posted data for another brand of 147 Jacketed HP. Load up ten rounds at this OAL and shoot them. If they don't work, load up five shorter ones and five longer ones. Shoot them. Somewhere you will get the perfect load for your gun. When you get function down, adjust your powder loads to find the most accurate load for your gun.

I know some mighty serious PPC and bullseye shooters that load up 147 Hornady XTPs over the Titegroup for national level matches. They share the same Dillon 1050 for rolling their loads. Each shooter has a different powder load and a different OAL to wring out the maximum accuracy out of THEIR own pistol.

I am using 4.9 grains of PP with the same bullet at 1.100" (what Hornady recommends in the 7th edition manual) with no issues.
