Bullets with gas checks..
some cast lead bullets have a bevled base to which is attached a metal cup which prevents deforming of the bullet base by the hot gases upon firing.The bullets have to made to accept them and it takes a luber/sizer to attach them,IIRC.
They are used in hot pistol loads as well.Still cheper than jacketed bullets,again IIRC.
