Pretty much, yeah.

I can see why it happened that way when the Seecamp was the only game in town. But now that there are dozens of competing pocket 32's, you'd think that the ammo makers would change the OAL to work better with them. If they still want a piece of the LWS32 market they could very easily do limited runs of the old OAL and just mark those boxes "For the Seecamp LWS32."

This isn't Rocket Surgery.

Well, I'm also thinking of the millions of old Walther PPK's and Colt 1903's that are still out there, which have longer barrels that can take advantage of JHP's. Those pistols must suffer from rimlock as well if loaded with JHP ammo.

Stacking angle in the magazine also affects whether rimlock is possible. The more vertical, the more likely. More angle, less possible.
