  • Load data for our Superior Plated Bullets® can be found in any manual or on any powder manufacturer’s website.
  • Cast or jacketed data with the same grain weight and profile will work with our bullets.
  • You can use a taper or a roll crimp.
  • Don’t over crimp the brass after seating. This causes bullet core separation, leading to increased copper fouling and accuracy issues.
  • Don’t exceed the recommended maximum velocities listed. This creates bullet core separation and accuracy issues.

Berry 38/357 bullet.

By Wayne S. on Oct 27, 2023
The Berry 38/357 thick plate bullet is .357 diameter. When it was first introduced on the market it didn't have a crimping groove. A 357 Magnum round should be crimped. Later on, Berry provided a crimping groove, this prompted me to try the bullet. The hardness of the lead is Brinell 14 whereas other Berry bullets such as 9mm and 30 carbine have a lead hardness of BHN 8.
The combination of the thick plate, crimping groove and harder lead makes this bullet very accurate.

Loaded 50 rounds using this bullet. Bullet insertion into the case went smooth, no issues.. As I have not fired those rounds I cannot give a complete review.
