Product Information

Berry's Preferred Plated bullets begin as a swaged lead core. The swaged lead cores are tumbled in an electrically charged bath containing high-grade copper ingots. The copper clings to the lead and the longer the bullets remain in the bath, the thicker the plating.  The bullets are plated to the correct size and then taken out of the bath. Plated bullets are not as expensive as jacketed bullets.  They are cleaner than lead but you'll want to stay away from magnum velocities when loading plated bullets.  This is not loaded ammunition.

all plated bullets are not the same. some have very thin plating but these are best I have used and the plating seems much thicker. I have a new S&W M&P .40 and I have not been happy with its accuracy even with factory ammo so I decided to reload my own. i tried some other plated bullets but did not get good results. I tried these using 4.8 grains of Winchester 231 and so far I got the best groups ever at 20 yds with these. I also got these in 180 grain which I have not tried yet and I hope I get the same results with them. wish I could try these with accurate # 5 and 7 powder but I have been unable to get any. I think the results would be even better.
