Here's a tip from someone who has bought, loaded and fired TENS of
THOUSANDS of plated bullets: don't go too light.
If anything, err on the side of too heavy.

If you load plated bullets with data meant for light lead bullet loads...you run risk of sticking them in the bore. Lead bullets offer MUCH less resistance than plated, and plated shouldn't be used with too conservative a load.

I love plated slugs, but I run them harder.
