I saw the thread on plated versus jacketed bullets, there as to 9mm and .40S&W. Federal Champion vs. American Eagle: http://glocktalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1246548 Since I shoot .45acp, I'm interested in how either bullet covering performs out of my G21 and G30. Is there such a difference between plated and jacketed, that one is better for self defense? If so, I'll use the lesser for target, the better, for SD/HD... Currently, I'm using Federal's Champion 230gr plated hardball, but I also have WWB 230gr FMJ, and Remington 230gr FMJ, and Remington's UMC 230gr hardball from their 250rd value packs. Thanks in advance, OldArcher, out... Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
