Why do you assume a plastic tip is responsible for accuracy? If it was, all target bullets would have them. As far as I know, none do.
While a plastic tip does indeed help initiate expansion (at least, so I have been told...) It ALSO helps with accuracy.
No dacaur - From some of my recent reading, The tip of the bullet has the least effect on accuracy. Tip is way behind an imperfection at the base and lower on the accuracy list than concentric and consistent diameter.

You need to find out for yourself before making a statement. Try taking a box of 20 lead tipped bullets that one of your rifle likes and make an imperfection in the tips of 10 then shoot then shoot 2 5 shot groups with each half. Its been done and the tip imperfection didn't change the group size.
