Default Copper Bullet

I mentioned in one post that my father-in-law used to copper plate his own bullets. Here is an example of one of his cast lead copper plated bullet.

I do not know how the performance was but I recall him speaking about how simple it had been to rig up a copper plating device.

Anybody out there have any experience with this form of bullet making?
