Berry's Bullets Load Data
« on: September 27, 2011, 04:30:13 PM »
Does anyone have any recipes for Berry's Preferred Plated Bullets in .40 S&W 180gr Flat Point DS

As well as OAL?

Berry's 180 TC bullet, 6.5 grains of PP (high speed), or 5.7 grains of Herco (target load), 1.120 OAL  The power pistol load shoots at 980 FPS from a glock 22, never chrono'd the Herco load, but it's very noticeably lighter recoiling.
stainless non-ranch mini-14, 1976 10/22, m77 MkI in .264 win mag, 2 x "Ronbo Special"  1911 GM's, .45 ACP and .40 Smith
3 Lee Pro 1000's in 9mm/.40 S&W, .45 ACP and .223 Rem.

when I used barries bullets I just used starting load data and never had any issues. I think the best advice is start low and work up to where your gun cycles reliably.
If you are not willing to kill it to eat it then you have no business having some one else kill it for you.
