What’s the length of those bullets ?
With digital calipers, base to tip measures between 1.295 and 1.300 inches. Couldn't find the length on Hornady's website.

In general a solid copper bullet will weigh only 75- 80% of a jacketed lead core bullet the same size and shape. An example would be the 240 Sierra Match King at 1.590” vs the 194 Lehigh at 1.525”.

That doesn’t apply so easily to length because of profile, but It’s a good thing to keep in mind when looking at published data and switching bullets.
300 Blackout, not just for sub-sonics.
