Plated bullets look cheap. The jacket is thin and irregular, with many imperfections.


Actual Jacketed bullets are smooth and uniform.

True. They look like sh!t. But they shoot quite well indeed.

Plated bullets have come a long way since they first appeared on the market. My Berry's 9mm 124 gr. thick plated HBRN bullets can be fired at 1450 fps. so there they can be loaded to the same velocity as equal weight FMJ's.

As far as appearance I think they look just as good as the FMJ's. Berry's 124 gr. plated on L Win. 124 gr. FMJ on the R.

plated berry's is pretty much all i use. i use them at 1400ish fps out of a ported 460 rowland. there is some backblast with burnt powder hitting my face time to time. so if im hit with flecks of copper better that than flecks of lead from a uncovered bullet base. when i shoot the rowland i use wrap around eye protection so none of that has a chance to get to my eyes.

but since porting and compensators tend to redirect blast to the rear (at the shooter) they are prolly lawyering up. thats the only thing i can think of. i sure wouldnt want to fire a regular open lead based fmj out of a ported gun. vaporized lead gasses suck

plated bullets do not shed their jackets. ive had plenty of standard open base fmj come apart on impact. a lot of indoor ranges wont let you use anything but tmj or plated bullets for hazmat reasons

What confuses me is what is the difference between "plated" and "jacketed"? Most of the bullets that are still intact when I clean my dirt pile are 9mm. I use WWB for 9mm practice. There is no exposed lead on the bottom of a WWB. I have never bought a TMJ in my life. Friends might have shot TMJ but not that I have noticed.

Tmj is total metal jacket. Plated bullets fall under that description. Fmj that is covered up completely is a plated bullet in most cases.

I believe but not 100% sure winchester whitbix is plated. I dont use much if any shelf ammo except 380acp as i dont shoot a lot of it and my main sd round is winchester white box fmj 380. It sure looks plated to me.

I have Berry's and Ranier Ballistics plated bullets that I load for a Glock 20C. They shoot great as long as you keep them slow. Once you pass a certain speed, the compensator ports will tear a chunk out of the side of the jacket. Don't remember offhand what that speed is.

It's a cover their azz statement.

It's directed to PD guns.

Never use a ported gun for Personal Defense!

In low light situations, you blind the shooter.

DO NOT USE ported barrels in any carry scenario.

Trust this old man on this.
