    I like berrys and rainier (pretty much the same thing). be sure to use lead data, and have fun

    Yes I used to shoot them all the time. When FMJ's started to be cheaper to buy I stopped buying Berry's.

    Berry's actually recommends using jacketed data. This is from their web site.

    Any suggestions on O.C.L? Was thinking of trying 6.0grns of Win231 or 5.0grns of titegroup and CCI LPP.

    John I have been shooting a lot of Zero bullets. I bought mine from Powder Valley but you can also buy them from I think they are very good bullets and have no complaints.

    All I load are plated bullets (local indoor range prohibits bare lead). Never had a problem with Berry's or Ranier's product.

    +1 to RandyP.

    I buy Berry's direct from their website. I'm a revolver man, and Berry's sells the .32 Long and .41 Mag. plated bullets that I like. I load them at 850 fps for indoor shooting in the winter. Accurate, and never any leading.

    Berry's are great bullets, I usually go with Rainier, just because of where they're made and just slightly lower cost. I don't hesitate one second to recommend Berry's though.

    I have been using Berry bullets for about 3 years now in .380 ACP, .38 Super, 9mm, 40 S&W, 10mm, 44 Mag, and 45 ACP. I normally use low end FMJ recipes from Hornady, Sierra, Speer, and Lee manuals with no problems at all.

    seems like a heck of a deal. what kind of accuracy do you get? how uniform do they seem to be? and... what have you been shooting them in? what calibers i mean

    I shoot a lot of Zero brand bullets in my 45acp,10mm, 40 S&W and 9mm. They are excellent bullets and accuracy is excellent as well. I have given up on plated bullets due to the high cost and only so-so accuracy. My Zero and Montana Gold loads out shoot my plated bullets by quite a large margin.

    What's not to like? Cheaper, use real jacketed load data and better accuracy. The only draw back is availability. They can be out of stock from time to time. I did find another source the other day.

    10mm/25 yards/180gr Zero JHP/EAA Elite Match/15 rounds.
