    On the side of safety thought I would ask your thoughts.
    Want to use Barry's plated instead of lead for cowboy action loads do we see any problems?

    I used rainer plated in a conversion cylinder

    Without blowing anything up. I used 200 and 230 gr but had problems with the crimp. I would use a 45 acp taper crimp or use the regular roll crimp but just enough to remove your bell. If you crimp too much it messes up the plating and you'll end up with leading.
