    I,m new here and would like some info on reloading 40 s&w copper plated bullets. I thought I could use the jacketed data to use since there is not much data on the copper plating data. Ive been using HP38 on all my handgun reloading. would it be safe to use HP38 starting at 4.1 gr?

    Welcome to THR.

    For years, I have used either lead load data or start-to-mid range jacketed load data for plated bullets but Hodgdon recently added 40S&W load data for Berry's plated bullets (BERB) so we don't have to guess/wonder anymore.
