After all the helpful advice , I going to stick with the plated & FMJ's . What was the reason you all shoot the soft stuff ?
Chris,

Economy and accuracy. First, just because it's a lead bullet doesn't mean it's soft. Most of the commercial cast bullets have a BHN of about 12 which is not soft. Second, plated bullets are not noted for their accuracy. Check out the Bullseye shooters, and none of them shoot plated bullets; it's either lead or jacketed. Also, none of them are shooting round nose bullets. Basically, if you want an accurate bullet in .45 ACP, you will go with a SWC, either lead or jacketed, with lead being the economical choice. Right, Rod?
