Just a FYI

I just started reloading using Berrys Bullets. Did a couple hundred (115grn) and tested them in a Glock, a Berreta, and a FA UZI. They all worked fine. The only issue that maybe a potential problem is CRIMP. I noticed that any excessive crimping will crush the plating. I don't know if this could be a problem, but the Berry's web site recommends light crimps.

Be careful out there

I use Berrys bullets for a lot of loads. As was mentioned earlier, if you stay below 1200 FPS then you are OK. This information comes straight from Berry's website. I just got me an XD in .357 SIG and I have a bunch of Berry's .355 bullets so I will load them at 1150 FPS to stay below that 1200 threshold. (Once I get my dies, that is)

How do you like your .357 sig? I almost bought one, I have heard alot of good things about that cal. but, was afraid the ammo would be harder to find than 9mm and 45acp, at least while the panic is going on.
