OAL 22-250 55 gr V-Max Help

My Hornady loading manual is one publication behind the V-Max. I have scoured the internet before posting this request. Since I have lost 50% of my retirement in the stock market, I don't want to buy the book for loading data on one bullet . I have a Stony Creek OAL guage and comparitor and get inconsistant readings each time I use it on the 55 gr. No problem with 52 gr BTHP. What does Hornady list as OAL for the 55 V-Max? Thanks in advance

From the Alliant powder website with 55 Vmax. Hodgdon also lists 2.35" with a 55 grain bullet, not sure which brand though.

You could also call Hornady, they have faxed me information before.
