    I found some West Coast bullets in 124 gr RN for a 9 mm, and they say copper bullets on them. I haven't cut one, but I am guessing that the are copper plated. Would that put them in the Berry's category? I have a load for the 115 gr Sierra Jacketed Hollow core that I found, I was just wondering if anyone has any history with these and Unique? Have the 650 all set up to load out what I have in the 115's and will shoot some in the next day or two to see how the function in my bosses Glock. I put the over 5.4 grains of Unique and that was nice since I didn't have to change the measure from what I load in my Sig 226 .40 with the 150 LRNSW. Anyone have a nice soft shooting load for that 9mm recipe that they wouldn't mind sharing?

    I have used thousands of XTreme bullets. Very nice bullet, and a little cheaper than Berry's.

    Both their lead and plated bullets have worked well for me, especially when I lived a few miles away and could get them at the plant......
