    I am aware that the plated need to be loaded different then FMJ and LSWC. Where should I look at starting a load and the max ( generally) if say I am using

    Win WST: w/ 1.25 OAL

    I use Rainier plated bullets and use the lead bullet data.

    I have loaded thousands of Berry's 200gr plated with zero issues. MY LOADS, not necessarly for anyone else, are 5.6-5.9gr. 231 under the 200 gr FP Berrys with a light taper crimp. These shoot very well in MY 1911's, Springfield XDm, and my 625JM revolver. Your mileage may vary. Check your reloading manual before you start. Alos drop them in your barrel for a good OAL for your round in your gun.
