Default Load Data for Plated Bullets

I've been reading that I should be using cast bullet data for plated bullets or backing off jacket data by 10%. Is this correct? I've been using jacketed data for my plated bullets in 45 ACP and have been fine. The reason I bring this up is because I want to be able to see what some of the higher velocities are like but I want to be safe. Mostly I'll be doing softer loads for target practice but want to know what I can do outside of that.

P.S. This is for 357 magnum loads
