BERRY 45 (.452) 230gr RN BULLET ROUND-NOSE 250/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.

Production Quality Review

I haven't loaded these yet so I thought to do some quick measurements to see how consistent the manufacturing process is. I picked ten random bullets and weighed them, measured the length and took two diameter measurements 90 degrees apart.
Average weight was 229.6 grains with a hi-lo spread of 0.8 grains. Average length was 0.6368" with a hi-lo spread of 0.001". The diameter measured out at 0.452", PERIOD, no deviation.

Excellent accuracy and no issue driving it at hardball velocities. These are a great cost savings

Really like the quality of these bullets and the price is way cheaper than box stores!
Excellent option for practice

These are an excellent choice for practice or general shooting in my estimation. When loaded, they feed just as good from a magazine as regular hardball in my 19ll handguns. They are also quite accurate in my S&W Model 25 revolvers over Red Dot and W231/HP38 powders.

These bullets are a great alternative for informal target shooting and familiarization. It makes shooting more fun when you're shooting cheap!
Excellent alternative to jacketed bullets

These are well constructed. If you are looking for an alternative to usually more expensive jacketed rounds for practice loads, look no further!
I have run them through Glocks and 1911's without feeding issues. There is a wide variety of load data out there to boot.

Good quality, good price, what's not to like? I loaded these up with titegroup and everything is running smooth.

I love these bullets for my .45 ACP pistols. They shoot extremely well in my three .45 caliber Glocks.
