I've loaded many thousands of Berry's plated in 180 grains... I did a slew of their flat points and have since changed to their rounded shoulder design. WHY did I change?! I clicked the wrong thing when ordering, and ended up with a different slug...so I simply transitioned to it.
I run these slugs with Power Pistol, though I've experimented with Universal, too.
I also use the CCI-500, small pistol, non-magnum. Sorry, can't offer and advice or experience with slugs lighter than 180gr in .40 S&W.
