    I am looking to get some Berry's Preferred Plated Bullets for .45 ACP. Do I get the .452? I am used to looking for .451 for 45acp.

    Get the .452" bullets. They're soft inside and shoot like cast, but without the smoke and leading.

    Hope this helps.

    I don't know what you're looking for in Berry's bullets, but for general plinking and paper punching through my 1911's, Witnesses and XD, I prefer their 185 grain Hollow Base Round Nose .45 bullet. It has the same profile as the 230 grain RN, but shoots softer and is very accurate. Ramshot lists loads for it in their data, but I've also used both Bullseye and Winchester 231 with it.

    Hope this helps.
