Hey all,
I picked up a box of Berry's plated 230gr 45 acp plated bullets.
The only powder I have is Trail Boss. Anyone done any loading using these components?
Thanks,
Roger

According to Lee's 2nd Ed for a Lead cast 230 gr bullet would be 3.5 min gr for 658 fps to 4.5 gr @ 762 fps @ 17617 psi.

Now I'm a Trailboss lover but never used it in anything but 45 Colt and 45-70 Gov. loads.

Thanks for the information. I've been loading 230 gr cast with Trail Boss but have never loaded plated. The Berry's site suggests using the published cast data, but I wanted to check to see if anyone has first hand experience with Berry's plated using Trail Boss. I've only been loading for a few years and I tend to be pretty cautious.
