    Same question from me. I just received a shipment of Berry .380 100gr RN plated and they 'look' great! My order for 9mm and .45ACP has not yet been filled (backorders)

    I will be reloading some of the .380 over the weekend after verifying bullet weight by sample testing on my little MTM DS-1250 digital scale.

    I also have some Ranier plated on the way and have heard that X-Treme plated are worth a look, though they seem pricier than the Berrys.

    I've used both Rainier, and Berry's bullets in .45 ACP, 9mm, and .357 .... They load fine, and shoot well. The only cautions are that the muzzle velocity should not exceed 1200 fps..... and don't over crimp, as it can cause the plating to be stripped/peeled off the rear of the bullet.

    +1 for Berry's. I use them in .45 ACP and .38 Spl. Good bullets for target shooting.

    I also have used both Berry and Rainier Lead Safe bullets for quite a while. No real difference in quality of the bullets or the accuracy.

    Just received my 1000 round box of 40 cal 180 grain bullets. Will get them loaded up soon and report back on how I liked them. I have heard only good reports on them and thats why I ordered them.

    I've shot alot of Rainiers in .357 magnum at pretty close to max loads with excellent results. I have about 1250 Berry's waiting to be loaded. Looking forward to trying them out.

    I just bought 1000 10mm 180 gr hp
    Thanks for the info...I have not shot these before but will give them a try...I usually shoot Hornady HAP and they were about $45-50 more...Not bad for the quality.

    Today, I ordered some .357s, .40s, and .45s from Berry's. They were out of 200 grain .45s but were in the process of "making" some so they won't ship my order for a couple of weeks.
