Their Berry's page is currently down due to an overwhelming amount of orders.

Worked for me - Thanks Much!

March 6, 2013, 04:35 PM
Me too, thanks! I was almost out of .380 pills.

Hee Haw, just placed an order for 2,000 9mm:)

Guys RN-DS for all around use - right?

March 6, 2013, 05:32 PM
Thanks for the heads up!

For punching paper, they don't even need to be double struck. But yeah.

Edit: I see they are limited, if they are DS it's all good.

March 6, 2013, 05:38 PM
What is double struck and how is it better?

March 6, 2013, 05:41 PM
After lead bullet is copper plated it is struck one more time to make it more uniform in size and shape.

March 6, 2013, 05:42 PM
Dunno if it makes a difference but they're great bullets IMO.

March 6, 2013, 05:51 PM
Guys - thanks for answering - I was getting dogged in my other post

March 6, 2013, 05:55 PM
I get that they are struck twice. Why is twice better than one?

March 6, 2013, 06:08 PM
Step 1. Bullets are swaged from a custom alloyed lead for uniformity.
Step 2. Then plated to final weight.

Most plated bullets end at step 2.

Step 3. Plated bullet put back in a carbide die to be Re-Struck to the preferred dimension.

If you look at some plated bullets they just don't appear as "uniform" as FMJ's. They shoot ok but by re-striking or double striking it attempts to improve uniformity.

I have shot some Berry's 230 grain DS bullets but accuracy was only ok. I have had better luck with fmj but Berry's are a lot cheaper. Thanks for the heads up.

Thanks for the heads up! I just ordered a box of 9mm. They don't say their shipping rates says it will be added to the order after the fact. But as long as it is reasonable it should be a good deal.

Now to get some .45...

March 6, 2013, 10:25 PM
I too thought about the shipping rates but consider what is going on here:

I will pay the shipping! Know that you are dealing with two good companies Berry's and Powder valley.

I could smack myself because I did not go for some .45 as well. 230 gr rn is basically gone.

9mm went quick. I heard that they had 7 tons of Berry product this am.

(I know FMJ is better than plated but can't shoot what i can't buy.)

March 6, 2013, 10:27 PM
anyone know what they charge for shipping? i only need a couple boxes and shipping might kill it.

March 6, 2013, 10:34 PM
Yeah, unless shipping is more than $30 I think it still qualifies as a good deal! Thanks again. And I have reloaded berry's 9mm before without any problems.

March 6, 2013, 10:36 PM
I think there out now. I go to the page and there is nothing listed

March 6, 2013, 10:39 PM
Website been doing that all day - site overloaded. Keep checking back and sooner or later their offerings reappear.

March 7, 2013, 11:42 AM
There out of 9 now

March 8, 2013, 11:29 PM
Anyone know what the shipping cost is for powder valley for bullets?

anyone know shipping cost?

They are very fair on shipping. If i remember correctly, my first order from them last year for 500 125gr 357's, two pounds of powder and 3k primers was $15. order 2-3 months ago of 10k primers and 5lbs powder was $20
