Accuracy reports, Berry's Bullets?

Mostly in .40 S&W, 180 grains. I've tried both their truncated cone flat point (TCFP--isn't that redundant?), and their round nose flat point (RNFP) at still unknown velocities, and can only say that they will group at about 3 inches at 25 yards.

Anybody done any better? Anyone notices any accuracy differences between their different bullets?

By way of comparison in .357 Magnum, I've found that Oregon Trail 125-gr TCs can easily do 2 inches at 25 yards, from three revolvers tested with both iron sights and a 3-minute red dot, at velocities from 1200 to 1450 fps. But those are hard lead, not plated.

Thanks!

Today I was shooting 124 grn Berry RN 9mm rounds in my 357sig 229sport. At 15 yds, 50 rnd groups were about 1.5". With the same bullet at the same range in my 210-6 9mm, 50 rnd groups were about 1.25". The 100 grn Berry 380auto gave 3" groups (patterns) out of my colt 380 gov for 50 rnds.

I think they are good bullets, but I think I may be driving them to fast for their own good.
