When I started reloading 9mm about a year ago, I started using Berry's 124 gr HBFPTP. I liked everything about these bullets and they got me off to a good start. Since then, I learned about RMR bullets here on THR. I've been buying and using the MPR 124 grain and I like these bullets very much. When I was at Sportsman Warehouse the other day I saw they had the 124 gr Berry's bullets and I thought to myself, I always liked those, I think I'll pick up a box of 250. I put them back on the shelf when I saw that they had gone way up in price and are now considerably more per bullet than the RMR jacketed HP. I pay about 9 cents per bullet for the RMR's and the Berry's were about 12.5 cents. This leads me to ask the question: Why would I ever use plated bullets over jacketed now that very good jacketed bullets are lower in cost. Can anyone give me a scenario where they would pay more to use plated bullets? I always understood that lower cost is the advantage of plated.
