design page question

Hi Dan,
This may sound stupid...but do you count the front drive band in the nose length or do you pick a band then a nose length beyond that. Thanks

The "nose length" is whatever sticks out of the case.

If the bullet has a crimp groove, then it is everything above the indentation on the crimp groove.

If the bullet does not have a crimp groove, then it is everything above the uppermost lube groove. Of course, in practice, the seating depth may be adjusted in or out, so a crimpless "nose length" is merely an approximation.

Return to “design & sizing”
