Thank you for the credit! I just managed to find this data and have seen so
many questions on other forums about loading Rainier Plated bullets and all the answer seen to be " just load them as lead bullets". Well since I had the information it was just the right thing to do SHARE the information.
Merry Christmas

I'm in the process of getting ready to reload about 1000 rounds of 40 S&W for a friend of our youngest son. He bought 1000 Raineir Ballistics 165 grain jacketed flat nose bullets which I cannot find any reloading information for! I'll be loading them with Winchester 231 powder.

Can someone tell me (email me at [email protected] ) the band width of the powder and what the COAL (loaded round case over all length) should be?

Thanks ahead of time for any help.

i use the data for the lead bullets when useing bulk bullets,it seems the faster the cartridge you are useing is the lighter the load must be to keep from heavily copper fouling and jacket seperation but too light of loads will not feed reliably,lot of stove pipes if you push it to slow with the 45 auto ranier bullets you buy in bulk they call the tmj bullets. try a slower burning powder like h110 and use the ramier lead bullets data for those tmjs you will have far less trouble.(Quote of the day)!! FROM MY COLD DEAD HANDS,!! from the late charleton Hestonto the nra conventioneers in colorado.

Hmm From what i've found else where, the min. is 3.3 and max is 4.6, does this possibly sound right to anyone?

And thank you, this is my first Real gun Forum and I'm Enjoying it!

That's what is nice about my Lee Modern Reloading II manual. It actually has recipes for copper plated bullets in a lot of calibers.
