155 gr 40S&W

I have some Berry's 155 gr plated RN bullets. I am looking to load them for my 40 with bullseye. Does anyone have any experience with this? What have you used? My book has TMJ 155 grain RN starting at 5.4. What do you guys think?

That is a good light target load.

That is a good light target load.
Worked fine in my G23, no failures of any kind in the ammo, or pistol.

HOWEVER:
When practicing on a reactive steel plate, fall-down silhouette,
I noticed that light target loads were rather wimpy in knock down power.
For that reason, I will purchase more Power Pistol, and not purchase more Bullseye. Power P. gives around 200+ fps; (20%+).
