Can anyone confirm the lengths of MadCow's 5" FW nosecones?

Because the ratio is used to indicate an aerodynamic shape, only the part that's aerodynamically exposed should be included in the ratio, so a 5:1 nosecone, that's 5" in diameter at the shoulder, should be about 25" long.
I included the weasel word "should" because I don't have a Mad Cow nosecone to measure.
