There is a company called "EXTREME BULLETS" that makes lead & plated
bullets, I bought some 357 cal, 158 grain SWC that are plated, can I use the
same powder & grains that is reccomended for lead, or is there a difference.

I also purchased 45 cal, 230 grain RNHP plated bullets, I can not find RNHP
listed in my Sierra, or Hornady book, any suggestions ?

Yes as a rule of thumb you load platted bullets to the same velocities as lead bullets.

Though like all loads where you change components start low and work up.

You can push the Xtremes to velocities equal to plain based hard cast bullets. I have run them to 1400fps in one of my carbines, for many rounds, with accuracy of about 2" at 75 yards and far more consistant than other brands. I have also found their plating to be quite a bit heavier than others. They are now the only plated rounds that I buy.
