Plated bullets are, however, a great alternative to straight cast bullet, and I shoot a lot of them... including Berry's (and, for that matter, whatever is on the shelf.) Never had a problem with inaccuracy or barrel fouling.
Plated bullets are not cast bullets. They are swaged bullets, that are then electroplated with copper.
