Zero 115 conical

Anyone shooting these from a 9mm x 19? I picked up some to try, and have been working on a seating depth. I made five of each from 1.145 to 1.100 in.010 increments, I was hoping to run them over the chronograph to check velocity if it ever warms up.
On the VV site it lists the XTP which is similar but not exact with a depth of 1.142 so Im looking for feedback from folks that have used this bullet and the seating depth you settled on.

Yep, you've got it right.
1.142" is what i've used with the zero 115gr conical bullet.
5.0gr vv330 or 4.8gr vv320 will do it justice. Jp

Good point, I plan to try some of these as alternative to HAP.

I’ve only shot the 125 JHP (with great success). Let us know how this bullet shoots for you. How far off the rifling is your longest COAL?

I started with the OAL that VV states on their reloading pages. It plunked OK so I just went from there. Ill check it out later and see what it takes to reach the lands but my initial feeling is it might be too long for magazine use.
I screwed up when I ordered the 115s, I had wanted to order the 125s but messed it up by one digit. Guess Ill just have to order some 125s for a side by side comparison.

In my P365 a 115 gr conical @ 1.170” just plunks. My Springfield pro on the other hand with a 125 gr conical plunks @ 1.237”. Both bullets are from Zero so a pretty big difference in leade between these two barrels.
