Our  .458 500 Grain Spitzer Tipped 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) 500 Grain Plated Bullets

Our 500 Grain .458 Caliber Plated Bullets feature a Spitzer tip / 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 pistol 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. Kevin

    Hi great bullets guys, 3 touching out of my 45-120 , weight same ,1450 fps hits like a sledgehammer . Thanks

    I bought 100 of these to load sub sonic in my .458 SOCOM, I have not had a chance to shoot them yet but that look like like a nice projectile. They are a little soft and the seating plug left a ring on the bullet Ogive but I don’t think it will affect accuracy. I need to message my seating plug a bit more and see if I can get rid of the ring when seating bullets into the case.

    Just finished firing 10 out of 458 lott. The pointed tip allows for flawless feeding. Look great. Shoot great at 1,000 and 1,700FPS. I enjoy loading down as I also shot 10 350s gr. at 1,ooo and 1,850 FPS. They said to keep below 2,000 and that I was glad to do. Very accurate. I shot all off hand. I enjoy and they are inexpensive. Next purchase it is 100 350s, and 250 357 bullets. Berrys bullets require much slower speeds. 1250 FPS or they come apart, the heavy jacket on these makes all the difference.
