You must be recovering them intact from soft mud or something where they haven't hit anything hard enough to deform/break the plating. An intact plated bullet will NOT allow the molten lead inside it to escape unless the plating is penetrated.

Plated bullets I recover from my club's indoor range have hit an angled steel plate to deflect into the sand trap. They're badly deformed, never intact.
