You think you got problems? I use 9mm, .45, and .40 cal moly coated bullets. What do you load THOSE to?

I been using copper plated and low end jacketed recipes. That seems to work OK. Here is a target at 25 feet using the .40 cals and my SIG P229.

I have a thread going on the new Berrys plated for 7.62x39mm. One gun shoots it like a house afire at jacketed load levels, another strips it apart in flight. Berrys are good bullets.

I have reloaded the Rainier 125 plated bullets in my 357 for years at 1,200 fps - No problems.
