So what would be the purpose of a jacketed bullet? Yes, I like the plated bullets because it keeps my guns cleaner.

the jacket is usually bonded to the lead core. the jacket is the part that usually expands. a lot of the jackets design and what it does when it hits something is dependent upon what it is used for, hunting, SD/HD, target or plinking, ect.,....

In a .22 rimfire, the playing is exactly for the reason you like it, to keep things a little cleaner.

Jackets that are made separately and then filled with lead or bonded to a lead core are usually to control extension, and fragmentation. This can be a way to get the bullet to retain shape and weight, to increase penetration in tougher targets.

"This is what I mean by the red box."

Seen these, is primarily the plating the reason you like these?

They are copper plated actually, in which a layer or jacket of copper is deposited on the bullet by the use of an electric current, so yes they are jacketed.
So, no, plated is not jacketed, and I'd have to see more info to believe that they are actually even electrically plated at that. If they are, the plating process would be more similar to aluminum anodizing, or chrome plating, or nickel plating.

Or, if you want REAL jacketed bullets, you could switch to 22 Mag, or 17 HMR...

Thank you so much for the information. I didn't know there was a difference. I feel a little smarter today.

Plating vs jacketing aside, I'd just about cry over a 550 box of bulk Remingtons like these. It's the only thing my P22 will feed reliably.

Using ammoseek, I found a box of 550 Remington 22LRs I need. I used to pay $19-$22 for them. They're asking $95 plus shipping.

That reminds me - I need to go check the "Rape Culture" thread...
