Berrys 9mm HBRN load data

Hello Forum

I have a box of Berry 9mm HBRN thick plated bullets, 0.356". My books have no mention of this bullet with my intended powder, Accurate #2. (I want to use it up / move to another product)
From the Western Powders Handloading Guide.........
124gr (P)BERRY HBFP 3.7gr 940fps 4.1gr 999fps 34,231psi 1.060"

Is there a reason that I can't use HBFP as a starting point?
In my world of reasoning,,,,,,,,,,,,I see little difference between a HBRN and a HBFP plated bullet of the same weight.
I realize Accurate2 is a fast powder and the cautions that accompany it.

Thank you!

The bullet weight would be helpful information. Also, the purpose of your load with this bullet - target, plinking, competition, self defense?

I wouldn't hesitate to use that start data and work up as normal.

Thank's for the quick response. I really need my own Chrono. Can you recommend one?

Your reasoning is spot on. Using 124 grn load data will be fine. The case volume will be slightly higher due to the hollow base. The hollow base allows for a longer bullet and stabilization at longer ranges.

Will you be able to make USPSA Minor without exceeding max pressure with A#2?

If you think you'll use it much the Labradar is universally loved.

I have the calwell ballistic precision (bought the full kit when it was on sale for $99) and it's been fine for me. I like the caldwell app for it... but it only works on iphone or ipad with an actual audio jack- the newer phones (8, 9, x) with the lightning jack audio doesn't work. My old iphone 7 is a dedicated chrono device now!

Take my comments with a grain of salt as this is the only chrono I have ever used for guns (and I don't remember which one we used for archery back in the 90's. ...lol)

I only mentioned the iphone thing because of the glitch on audio jack conversion- they have the same app for andriod and it's supposed to work with any android phone/tablet.
