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

    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.

    What is double struck and how is it better?

    After lead bullet is copper plated it is struck one more time to make it more uniform in size and shape.

    Dunno if it makes a difference but they're great bullets IMO.

    Guys - thanks for answering - I was getting dogged in my other post

    I get that they are struck twice. Why is twice better than one?

    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 though...it 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...

    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.)

    anyone know what they charge for shipping? i only need a couple boxes and shipping might kill it.

    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.
