.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.
