what weight?? bullet profile plays a good part of seating depth. but honestly i dont think its possible even seating it flush to the case mouth to damage a quality 1911 using normal powder charges. .075 short shouldnt hurt anything long as your not at max or over max charge. 1.275 is 230grn fmj oal. jhp may have different oal

.451" dia. JHP, 230 gr, sitting on 6 gr of Unique.

My lyman 48th puts a 225gr, JHP OAL @ 1.243"...i take that as a Max OAL.

Now the Lee specs that came with the die set has the min. OAL at 1.190" for a 230 gr jacketed bullet.

1.20" is what seems to want to work for my gun.

I checked the Hornaday website for load data, but of course you cant get any from their website.
