I found this while researching to. the link is also below. Its an IPSC article. Also, if you read through that article, there are guys loading as high as 1.235.
Cartridge Overall Length (OAL)
Many of the .40S&W handguns in use were developed from 9x19 handgun ‘roots’, and the SAAMI maximum Cartridge Overall Length ( 1.135”) for the .40S&W was set to accommodate the limitations of the magazines available for those designs. With the use of the .40S&W in 1911-pattern guns, the magazines will accommodate much longer OALs, and in many cases these longer cartridges will feed better in those guns. Many of the loads listed below were for OALs greater than 1.135”, and those without specified OALs from reloading manuals are to be assumed to be for loads no longer than 1.135”. Reducing the OAL of a load which is already at or above maximum pressure will drastically increase the pressure, possibly resulting in spontaneous catastrophic disassembly of the cartridge and gun!
