Plated or Lead?

    Have loaded Berry bullets for some time. Current component shortage has got my attention. Loaded some lead 115 gr RN and other than having to adjust crimp for pressure and bell for seating They performed well. I always load at the low end and believe that will reduce any leading problems. I ordered some LRN 115 gr
    from Missouri Bullet Company. Anyone have any experience with these and thoughts about lead. I am shooting a Bersa BP9cc.

    They are all lead, the plated just has a coating on it. I would load either one but given a choice between the two at the same price I would pick the plated since it would lead the barrel less plus less lead in the air when shooting.
