Our  .458 300 Grain RNFP Plated Bullets deliver an excellent balance between quality and value. These bullets begin as lead cores that are swaged to a precise starting weight. These cores then undergo a multi-step heavy copper plating process that deposits an approximately 0.008″ thickness of copper that completely encompasses the lead core. These copper plated bullets are then restruck to exact dimension and visually inspected. Offered in boxes of 50, 100 or 250 bullets.

.458 Caliber (.458) 300 Grain Plated Bullets

Our 300 Grain .458 Caliber Plated Bullets feature a Round Nose Flat Point / Flat Base design with a cannelure. These bullets begin as lead cores that are swaged to a precise starting weight. These cores then undergo a multi-step heavy copper plating process that deposits approximately 0.008″ of copper. This copper plating completely encompasses the lead core. These plated bullets are then restruck to exact dimensions and visually inspected. This process delivers consistent .458 caliber plated bullets batch after batch ensuring your shots are right on target every time. These plated bullets offer a great balance between quality and value allowing you to shoot the same bullet during practice that you would during a match without blowing your budget.

The typical plating thickness of plated bullets on the market today is 0.003-0.006 inches. The heavy plating of our bullets, 0.008 inches, is a distinct advantage over others. This thicker total copper jacket allows you to achieve FMJ velocities without the cost. You may also see these bullets referred to as  Total Metal Jacket (TMJ) or Complete Metal Jacket (CMJ) bullets.

Not only are plated bullets less expensive than traditional FMJ bullets, but they are also cleaner and safer to shoot. Why? The plating fully encapsulates the lead. With FMJs the base of the bullet contains exposed lead that will vaporize when the round is fired. This is eliminated with plated bullets.

1 review for .458 Caliber (.458) 300 Grain Round Nose Flat Point Plated Bullets

  1. Brian Smith (verified owner)

    These Evergreen 300 gr .458″ RNFP are perfect for 45-60 loads where the OAL is critical to feed through the 1876 Winchester (and clones) magazine and cartridge lifter. The cannelure is perfectly located for crimping a 45-60 case at just under max OAL. The rounds using these bullets feed perfectly through my Uberti 1876 clone, and deliver 2″ to 2.5″ accuracy at 100 yds, offhand, using my go-to Unique load. Good stuff!
