Berry's 124gr HBRN load data

I know these are a newer bullet , but it seemed to build a lot of excitment. Have anyone started to build any loading data for these? What kind of COL are you using and how are they holding up with the hollow base? Thanks

I've been shooting the .38 and .32 versions of the hollow base Berrys and using the same powder charges I use for the same weight of plated or hard cast solid base bullets. So far, I cannot claim any great improvement in accuracy. I'm not sure that any great improvement is possible in the short ranges we shoot handguns---but it's a great marketing tool. I've only shot 100 rounds of the .32 and 150 of the .38 so far.
