Hi, I have used the Berry's copper clad .40 S&W bullets, I saw some 30-30 bullets pretty cheap, have any of you used them? All input is welcome. Thanks and Happy New Year to you all. Mac

I've never loaded for rifle, just handgun. Lot's of people use Berry's handgun bullets, I use them myself, and I didn't even know they sold rifle bullets until I checked their website. The website says to not exceed 1,200 fps and every 30-30 loading is going to exceed 1,450 fps. How does that work? :confused:

Berry's AND Rainier plated bullets do loose thier plating during flight when over 1200 fps. I had chrono'd some 44 mag at 1140 fps and there was shards of plating stuck in the diffusers of my beta chrony. I use them only for loads less than 1000 fps now. As far as in a rifle... not me....
