Montana gold or Extreme bullets. Forget Barry's and Ranier.

+1 on Extreme bullets. They are great and very good pricing if you order direct from them. All of their online pricing includes shipping.

I use only the plated bullets and load them to min charge jacketed velocities. I've ordered one box of the hollow points and they were alright, but not something I would load for a carry round. I'll post a pic of one later for you.

I misspoke.

PRECISION DELTA, not Montana Gold. MGs prices went up astronomically last year. PD is still reasonable.

We cut some of the extremes in half, and the plating is as thick as jacketed

That's why I don't use plated anymore. I know exactly what I'm loading with W-W or Remington FMJ. And if I so desire, I can drive them to absolute maximum. (I don't recommend that, though)

You know, in all my reloading of different calibers I always find the most accurate load isn’t the hottest. I don’t know if its me or the gun or what but the I have loaded 5 charges for the 10mm with BD and 180g XTP’s so far and the maximum load works best by a decent margin…..for me and that’s unusual in my experience.

Thanks for the clarification, I have been considering PD and ZERO.....and haven’t heard of the extremes till you all mentioned them. Also considering Hornady HAP…..guess I better s#it or get off the pot way things are clearing off the shelves

Here is a pic of a .40 hollow point. It's a hex hollow and is plated throughout.

Looks nice, better then lot of things I bet….. Aren’t Gold Dots plated? Well I always thought they were jacketed but a very experienced reloader I have no business questioning told me they were plated thick.
I like Gold Dots, still have 50 of those to load yet for the 29
