BERRY 45 (.452) 230gr RN BULLET ROUND-NOSE 500/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.

Seems exit the barrel just fine If put a good enough load of powder behind it. Good price, great consistency
Great bullets, great price from Graf & Sons

I usually buy my bullets for reloading from a great company based in Idaho, but their order backlog drove me to look elsewhere. I happily discovered Graf & Sons.
These Berry plated 230gr round nose bullets are affordable, consistently weighted (I didn't find more than a 0.1 gr difference in a sample I checked), and shoot great.
For me: I'm pushing them with x.x gr of Accurate #2, 1.255 OAL, with an average velocity of 765 fps out of a 5" barrel. Nice light load for plinking and will still set the gongs ringing nicely.

Great bullet for plinking at a great price. Runs and feeds well in all of my 45's.

Use these (45 and 9mm) for indoor shooting. I've had no problems and they work better than the tech coated bullets.

Having used the Berry's 45 cal. - 230 gr. RN for many years, these are very accurate and allow duplication of Hard Ball ammo at a reasonable cost. Will continue to buy.

Good quality plated bullet, I only use Berry's. I have ordered these elsewhere and have received split open boxes. The box, with 2 boxes of 500 230 gr bullets from Graf's was perfectly packed and 100% intact and rock solid.Thank you Graf & Sons for great prices and great shipping!

Berry quality, with G&S good price and shipping fee, couldn't be beat. Use this 230 grain bullet for both .45 ACP and .45 Colt. Accurate and reliable in both loads.

I have used Berry bullets for loading 9mm, 40 S&W, and .357 Mag. All I have to say is, they have yet to let me down. They are very good bullets to use and cheap on price.
