In my limited testing I have observed that plated bullets provide about a 10% reduction in velocity when compared to lead bullets of equal weight with the same powder charge. You really need a chronograph to determine what you are doing. At one time either Midway or one of the manufacturers posted some pressure tested data but that is no longer avilable on their websites. Experimentation is half the fun!
