When I reload my rifle bullits I reload just off the lands or rifling.

Do you do the same with pistols, ie 92fs barretta's etc?

And if you do, how do you determine oal of a cartridge.

Does this make the pistol more accurate, such as in a rifle?

re: Do U reload 9mm ammon so the bullit is just off the land

No, I don't. I have never concerned myself, when loading either 9mm or .45ACP, with anything other than appropriate OAL for a particular bullet and an effective taper crimp. Since I tend to shoot the same load again and again, the OAL is set in the seating die, as is the crimp.
IMHO, much of what is common practice in pursuit of accurate rifle loads is unnecessary when assembling accurate pistol loads.
Measuring is done with a caliper.
My 9mm is a Browning Hi-Power; I have never wrung it out like I have my .45. It always works and shoots better than I do loaded as I have described. The .45, accurized by the late George Madore, will put all it's shots into the X-ring at 50yds. with cartridges loaded as mentioned. (the gun can do that; I can't).
