A 147 coated can run from 1.16 to 1.12" OAL depending on the weapon or maker's data.

I did not have CFE for my coated bullets but did use it with the Speer and Berry 147 jacked bullets, a year later.

CFE with copper coated ran from 851 up to 955 in my 5" pistol.

You can get good accuracy from coated bullets at slow or fast fps and with short or long OAL's.
I had .356 to .358 dia. coated bullets to work with and they might or might not work in your weapons.

With the .358 dia. bullets a "Plunk test" is a must, to see if it fits the chamber correctly.

Good luck.
