And you are correct, I assumed that there would be some melting but evidently the bullet does not hit a high enough temp to liquefy the polymer. in doing a little research I found that some bullets require a plastic tip to aid in feeding as not to get jammed into the ramp like the (soup bowl) designs of extreme shock bullets and as hunting rounds go the plastic tip bullets can be used in tubular feed guns so when fired they don't cause a chain reaction from the recoil

I used to be a fan of the CD until I looked at some photos of not half expanded bullets, but bullets that were only expanded on one side.
Have no idea what they went through to get that way but I'll stick with my Gold Dots or the TAC-XPs.
