I've been wanting to try berry's, but have had such good luck with Rainiers that I'm afraid to switch.
I shot my first 10mm handload today, a 165 grain Rainier flat point, and got terrific accuracy, 1.5" at 15 yards offhand. Couldn't be happier.
I also use Rainiers in .45 ACP and .45 Colt (200 grain SWC's), 9mm, and .38/.357 revolvers.

In 9mm I use the .356"/130 RN with very good results.

I found that for putting holes in paper, their about the same. Here's a link they have brass and bullets (1K) for $112 with free shipping. Bullets for $72/1k.

Both have worked just fine for me. I appreciate the utility box Berry's ship in.

I've loaded and shot a lot of Berry's in 9, 40 and 45. I've also done Rainiers in 9mm. They both seem fine.

Between the two, I don't see much difference. I just seem to order the one that is priced best at the time.

I'll second the other here and say that they work about the same for target practice.

Xtreme is, IMO/IME, better than the two listed. Cheaper in price and have a thicker plating so real jacketed velocity can be utilized. I tried all three and ended up choosing Xtreme as the bullet of choice for my commercial ammo and personal ammo.

I've bought 5k of those from there and I love them. The brass can be found cheaper, however. (although maybe not "processed")

I've shot a fair amount of Berry's and waayyyyyyy more Rainier. I put about 600 Rainier a month down range.

I prefer the Rainier, mostly because of logistics. Every Berry's order has resulted in me picking bullets out of the bottom of the shipping containers as they haven't been properly packed or secured in the box and broke open during shipping. If there are multiple calibers, I've then had to sort them. I gave it 3 shots, each with subsequent smaller orders and each one was the same so I've given up. Once the post office delivered a box in their plastic letter bins with bullets in the bottom of that.

All good advice above, but since you specifically asked about 9mm, I'll just mention that I have taken to Berry's over Ranier.
Why? Berry's 9 projectiles are .356 vs Ranier at .355.
Just one of those little things that I like. Many will point and laugh , but hey with some of my slightly generous older Beretta and Sig barrels, I will happily take the better fit if pricing is close to the same.

I gave up on plated, switched to Zero jacketed bullets. Same or cheaper than plated.

The best thing is get a bunch of people and put in a large order and have someone that has a bussiness that has a forklift that well take delivery of the shipment. Our last order 135 gr. X-treme bullets I paid $68.00 a thousand out the door.

The Xtreme bullets are cheaper through http://www.tjconevera.com/109mmofprbr1.html Then their own site. $72/k. Xtreme-$92 for 115 9mm, both free shipping. I like to save $ too.
