Cute little buggers! :D I'm not familiar with Hornady's plated bullets but have shot some of their FMJ in my 9mm...

Nice looking bullets. Are you sure they are Hornady Copper Plated bullets. I was not aware that Hornady made any copper plated bullets.:)

Not that I've heard of everything, but I've never heard that Hornady was making plated bullets.

Jacketed? yes, but not plated.

And yes, there is a difference.

A jacketed bullet has a thicker "jacket"

Where as plated bullets start as lead & are chemically/electronically bathed in a solution with copper, so that the lead is charged & allows the copper to adhere to it.

They are plated. I found a box at Bass Pro and it was the last one. I have since found that they have been DQued on thier website..
