reload data for Berry Bullets?




Is there reloading data published for Berry Bullets? I know that is is not 100% CRITICAL to use bullet-specific reload data but I also know it's a real good idea to. I am using VV powder, so that might make my search for data even harder. For as commonplace as Berry's Bullets have become, there must be some data somewhere!

Help us help you
As an engineer, you know we canít set the fixture if we donít know the spec of the parts

What VihtaVuori powder are you using? With what weight and style Berry?

The link below can lead you to VihtaVuori load data

Good Luck

I don't like my loads to be too soft unless it is for my wife or 38 wc for target. I don't like my loads to be too hot. I try for about in the middle.

That said I called Berry's when I started using their bullets and they suggested using the starting load for FMJ. So far that has worked like a charm for 9mm, 40, 45, and 10mm even. Most everything else I use either fmj or lead

I've been using Berrys for about 7-9 months, and load them to about the middle of the range for FMJ. This has worked well for my 380, 9mm, and 45.

Generally, my best accuracy from Berry's bullets is just above the minimum load for jacketed in the same weight and profile.

Start with the lead data and work towards the start load for FMJ. Works for me using 230 Berry's plated over Bullseye.
