FAQ: How do I load Berry's Preferred Plated Bullets?

We do not research or publish the load data, but you can use any published load data for a jacketed or lead bullet as long as it is the same weight bullet.  Any of the load data books or the powder manufacturers’ website should have that information for you, as long as you keep them under 1250 fps for our standard bullet or 1500fps for the bullets designated as TP (thick plate).  

 If a COL or OAL is needed please email service@berrysmfg.com for further information.

 We recommend very little crimp on the bullet, just enough to put pressure against the bullet without denting or deforming the plating.  If you were to pull the bullet out of a case with the proper crimp you would find no more than a scratch on the surface of the plating.  If you are denting or deforming the bullet your accuracy will suffer and the bullet may start to tumble before it hits the target.
