Copper plated boolits will basically behave like copper FMJ so you can use the load data for 230g FMJ. Start at the low end and work up and you'll be fine.

Yep go online to all the powder manufactures websites, Hodgdon, Accurate,Vihtavuori, Alliant and Ramshot. They all have reloading manuals free of charge you can download as PDF's I have them all plus some others on my laptop and on my smartphone for easy reference.

Berry's recommend using recipes for lead bullets. I have used Bullseye, Unique and Titegroup for reloading the Berry's 45 ACP.

There is a book called "The complete Reloading Manual" It list most all of the known loads for one caliber of bullet. I found it to be a good reference book.

You can PM me for my recipes (use at your own risk).
