    All "bonded" bullets are plated. What? You think they glue the jacket on?

    Yup, GDs definitely heavy plating. Just take a knife to one and scrape it and you will see.

    Then why do they use the term JACKET twice in that same paragraph?

    I only quoted the one usage, but they also said:

    "This virtually eliminates core-jacket separation"


    Guess I always "assumed" that using the word JACKETED means it was jacketed, not plated.

    But I did do a Google search, and see that everybody *is* saying it's a plated bullet. You would think someone in the bullet business would be able to use the appropriate terms appropriately.

    I never checked their website, but that is my exact load! Both my G19 and G34 love it.
    I agree, even this seems light. At least two of my load books go up to the low 6.?gr range. I loaded some up once, but they didn't work as well as 5.2gr Unique.

    Cool, good to hear. I was thinking about trying a similar load with a Berry's bullet. Glad it is working out so well for you.

    Great to hear, thanks for the feedback.

    It's been a busy few weeks for me, I haven't done any loading recently. I'm hoping to get some done this weekend and test them out early next week.

    I would have to disagree with this statement, no disrespect intended just my observations. I carry the 124gr +p GD's and even at 5.8 unique at 1.15 oal with 124gr RN bullets the recoil is not as significant. In fact, it may be my recoil spring or since I have a G19C instead of a regular G19 but 4.8 will barely cycle the action. I however gave those to my wife who has a Sig P250 and they worked very well. When I tried her gun the recoil was minimal.

    5.8 will step out just a little faster, about 30fps, than the 124GDHP +P load. 4.8-5.0, not so much.
