I've had copper plated bullets where the copper was a light wash that barely colored the lead, and I wouldn't worry about melting those down. But Berry's runs up to 8 thousandths thick, and that's enough to hold together during the post-plate sizing they do, so I wouldn't be surprised if it could pop during melting if recovered intact.
