Plated bullets need to have their copper surface broken enough to allow the lead to escape easily. Otherwise they pop like a beer can in a freezer. But in this case, molten lead goes where you don't want it to. Standard FMJ has a big enough hole in the back and HP pistol /Soft point has it in the front to allow the lead to escape. Most HP rifle rounds will usually break up enough to be no bother.
