    I try not to guess about load data. Even when the answer is somewhat obvious. :scrutiny:

    And we don't know what brand of plated bullets.

    All manufacturers of plated bullets plate them at different thicknesses.

    Raniers says lead data for their plate bullets while Berry's say low to middle jacketed data for theirs because Berry's plating is thicker.

    Extreme plated bullets is even thicker then Berry's so how can we answer your question as it's posted.

    Here's copper plating thickness comparison - http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?p=8835480#post8835480
    I used lead load data for Rainier plated bullets with good results. If I drove them harder, I started to lose accuracy.

    I used lead load data or start-to-mid range jacketed load data for Berry's regular plated bullets with good results. I used jacketed load data with Berry's Thicker Plated (TP), HSM, PowerBond, Speer Gold Dot/TMJ and X-Treme bullets with good results.
