bayou bullets/berrys plated
so whats the general opinion of the 2 the bayou bullets obviously are cheaper and seem to have made a good name even in glocks which is what i would be shooting them from. also i see the berrys plated at decent prices but really haven't found alot of info one way or the other on them.

Another member I shoot with uses the Bayou Bullets and has great success with them.
I don't think your making a bad choice either way. I've also shot the Power Bond plated with no issues.

i remember you saying youve heard good about the bayou bullets. did you ever order any of those delta bullets? if so how did they do.

I have not used Bayou yet. However the Berry's plated .40 180grains worked very well for me with little fouling and FMJ accuracy.

My 2 cents. I use Missouri Bullets for all my reloading. I shoot them out of Glocks and have seen no leading and also have not issues with feeding or accuracy. Also I can get a 1000, 180gr bullets in .40 for $64.00. www.missouribullet.com"The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good" -- George Washington

I know Donnies bullets are great.
Another good bullet is Black Bullets or Precision Bullets (both are called Black Bullets). I've been shooting Black Bullets (while waiting for Donnie to get ready for his new batch) and I can get those for $ 65/ 1000 delivered to my house..
I know Precision is $ 67/ 1000 delivered and if you buy more than 3k, the price drops to around & 61/ 1000 delivered.GSSF

I used to use the Berry's plated bullets a lot, and I liked them just fine. When I used them they were about $16 for 250 9mm, and it was a really good value. But now they are something like twice that cost, so I just started casting my own.
Home made cast bullets, in my opinion, are the best way to go for economy, personal satisfaction, load customization, and reducing wear on your gun.Piece Be With You and other T-shirts available at www.awesamerica.com.

thanks for all the advice i think im gonna give the bayou bullets a try. i clean my guns after every shooting so even if there ended up being some buildup i think i would be fine.

I recently loaded up a bunch of Bayou Bullets .357 158 LSWC, and they were great. Accurate, and less residue than with other lead bullets I've used in the past. Donnie was great to work with. Highly recommended.

I've used both Bayou and Berry's and like them both. Seems Donnie is out of what I need, so I'll be placing a Berry's order...

I've doubled the Berry's I've shot since this post started
Bayou Bullets are still running great for everyone I know shooting them.
