Instead of being a plain lead bullet it's a copper or brass plated lead bullet. Your not touching lead which is a known health hazard. I find it feeds better in a semi-auto, and won't foul the barrel with lead. Hopes this helps answer your question. The hollow point had a small hole in the tip to help with expansion. Great for hunting.

This "plated" .22 LR ammo has a thin metal plating (perhaps copper or brass) which helps reduce lead build-up in the gun barrel. Also, for those using silencers, the plating should reduce fouling in the baffles. The "hollow point" indicates the bullet has a hole in the round nose, unlike a solid point. This makes it expand easier.
I want to get some.

A plated hollow point bullet, also known as jacketed hollow point, is designed to cause severe damage by expanding on impact with its target, while minimizing the distance it penetrates. They were designed in an attempt to reduce collateral damage, as their penetration is impaired by the function of the hollow cavity.
