I have loaded some of the Berrys 100gr plated on top of 3.3 grains of bullseye-they seem a little warm but shoot really nice-and no signs of overpressure in my pistol.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois DENNIS B, I gave up reloading years ago but I'm sure we have members here that can help you.

Welcome to the forum from Cardinal Nation...

If the TankGunner comes along he may be able to help you out...

Just last night he posted that he reloads a bunch of ammo...

Yeah, welcome to the site from Tennessee, but I got nothing for you about the reloading.

Howdy from SETX! Great Shooting and looks like you may be on to something with that recipe. Tell me something (or as we say here in SETX, splane sumthin to me) what do you look for when you don't see signs of high or over pressure. My wifey just gave me the go ahead for a full blown gunsmith and reloading man cave of sorts and I want to peek over your shoulder because I don't know jack about it.

I have never reloaded 380. Dont even have enough brass to justify the dies. Guess I don't shoot it much either. But it is crazy pricey to buy. Never understood that. I did reload 500 45 and 750 9mm this weekend. Lots more to go!

Dennis B, welcome from Northern Illinois. I would be interested in the 'over pressure' question as well.

Flattened primers are one way to tell if they are a little too warm.I always start a new load out at about 10% less than the manuals start at and work my way up from there.If they shoot well mild I just stay at that load.I like my target ammo a little mild-its more fun shooting that way.
