Starline now has both Short and Long 38-55 with the thinner case mouth. So which one does one go with or does it really matter?

The 2.125 inches long.All the old Lyman Ideal reloading manuals I have have that as the length for 38/55.The short brass doesn't show up until Lyman #49.I don't have #48,but from #38 on only the long brass is listed.

It probably doesn't matter and my chronograph doesn't detect any significant difference but I like the long Starline better.
