Greetings.
I've been trying to find data for s&w 40 cal, 180gr FP from BERRY'S. Where can I find this info?

Thank you

Berrys dont provide load data. The only thing I remember is NOT to load their bullets to mag velocities or I believe, crimp

You can use regular load data, just keep them below 1500 feet per second.

Don't buy bullets unless you have load data you feel confident about.
1) I always loaded plated bullets using lead bullet data
2) Berry's says on their web site:
Where can I find load data for your bullets?
Load data from any load manual or website can be used. Full-metal jacketed, lead bullet, or plated bullet load data can be used as long as the following standards are adhered to:
  • The data contains the correct grain weight of bullet.
  • Berry's max recommended velocity is not exceeded. (This info is displayed on bullet boxes and product webpages.)
    • Standard Plate Bullets Max Velocity: 1,250 fps.
    • Thick-Plate Bullets (TP) Max Velocity: 1,500 fps.
  • Do not over-crimp the bullet. Crimping so tight that bullet deformation occurs, or plating is separated causing visible exposure of the lead core will cause tumbling, key-holing, and reduced accuracy.
Load data containing bullet descriptions such as Plated (P,) Berry's Bullet (BERB,) Total Metal Jacket (TMJ,) Copper Plated (CP,) or CPJ (Copper Plated Jacket,) refers to plated bullet data.
