BERRY 30-30 (.308) 150gr BULLET RS 1000/BX
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.

Loaded half of the box and have shot about 100 rounds. Use a light load of H335 and have been extremely pleased with the grouping at 50 yards. Will be buying another 1000 rounds!

I shoot these with Tite Group powder. I use the load listed for 168 grain bullets from the Hogdons manual. Using a savage rifle in 308. Off the bench at 25 yards they go in the same hole.
I shoot them off hand and do not leave the range until the inch bulls eye is cut out. 30 rounds does it.

These are nice. They shoot better than most cast loads in my Marlin 336 and Ruger 308. I don't get the accuracy I get with jacketed bullets but I'll keep trying to tweak my recipe (certainly good enough for plinking). They load up nice and don't seem to cause any leading. Weight is more form than many jacketed rounds.
Another Great Bullet from Berry's...

I've been using this "30-30" bullet in 300 AAC/Black-Out for my plinker-target rounds 0with excellent results. Very accurate and feed reliably (once I found the sweet spot with the C.O.A.L.).
Been pushed these bullets upwards of 2000 FPS, but Berry's rates them for 1900 FPS maximum. Am on my second box of a thousand and will certainly be buying more when these are gone!
Yet another great bullet from Berry's!
