whats the best bang for the all Mighty $$
I see Montana Gold{real jacket} and Berrys plated any others?
Of course being accurate is first on the list.
At pressent I have some FMJ with the rear open of 9mm and 45 as well as lead for both.
But wonder whats on my list after they are gone for FMJ/Plated :confused:

If you have to shoot some jacketed stuff...

I go with Berrys. They are not terribly priced. Plated is always cheaper, and "restruck" is always more accurate. YMMV.

Cheers!

You know, it always used to be that plated was less expensive than jacketed. But in the last 2 or 3 years, the price of plated bullets have risen faster than the price of jacketed bullets (it seems to me). Today, I think both Berrys & Rainier's are priced about the same as Zero jacketed bullets.

Don't pay too much attention in the price, unless I'm on a mission of sticking another new gun in my craw. then I might tighten the belt just a little till I get my fix, then it's back to buying the bullets again.
Other than that I use Barry's.

Berry's and Rainier have both been great in my 1911s...I shoot Berry's and Montana Gold in my XDm 9mm (because they are about the same price). It's tough not to recommend any of the three as I've never had any issues with any of them

My Wilson elite pro will not feed the Berry plated 200 grain swc. It feeds lead and jacketed fine. Does anyone else have this problem?

I shot a lot of the Berry's plated 185gr flat point bullets. Probably the most accurate load I found for my Colt.

Lots of plated and jacketed bullet makers listed over at www.reloadersresource.com

Some of the companies I've seen very little mention of.

Unless shooting a pistol (Glock or H&K) or at an indoor range that demands use of plated/jacketed, I'd go with cast bullets for about half to one-third the cost....

I have heard of other folks with the same problem using a plated or jacketed SWC.

I've been VERY pleased with these plated bullets:

I prefer them to Berry's. They are plated better, doublestruck and very uniform. I've bought the 230gr RN and .38 158gr Plated Flat Points.

You can find them for sale on Gunbroker under the seller LongDayJake, or access his website directly and get them http://www.rmrbullets.com/

He has great prices, you won't be disappointed.
