In my test..........
that is my "Maximum" load of powder with w231 powder with a 124hr bullet
with a short OAL of 1.12" , in my pistols.

If loading a 124 gr shorter, you need to work up to that load.....
since there is data out there with very short OAL lengths that could
make pressures too high, to be safe in your pistol !!
