    Wondering if anyone had reloaded the Rainier 180gr Flat Nose 40 S&W and what the results were? I have never used Rainier bullets before and wondered about quality and such.
    Thanks in advance for your help

    Thom, I've never used Rainier 40 cal but have used their 230gr for 45 acp with very good results. For plated bullets in my 10mm, I mostly use Berry's 180gr FP and they have proven very accurate, easy to order direct from Berry's and relatively inexpensive.
    I'm sure the Rainier's you have will work just fine.

    I use them in my 10mm loads and I'm very pleased with them.

    Ruger1228, I have been shooting the 180 FP for years with very good accuracy. They are my backup bullets for my Montana Gold FMJ match loads.

    I've used their 124 and 147gr 9mm and the 165gr .40s. They have all been good quality, good shooting bullets.
