No, the plastic is the skirt. The actual pellet is a hard alloy.

I believe the plastic tip is to give you the in-flight ballistic properties of a roundnose but the terminal ballistics of a hollowpoint.

the plastic tip allows for better flight and I believe it will aid in expansion by pushing back into the pellet allowing it to open up more on impact. Lambchops the pellets your thinking of are the lead free  these ones are  this

if it comes in .22 ill give it a try.  would have to be amazing for me to stop hunting with the predator pellets though.  those things shoot awsome and cause damage

Thanks, my bad for giving wrong info haha! On another note, a plastic tip sounds like it really could work well.

I hope they are not too heavy for springer use.

I'd be interested to see results of some impact tests.
I recently discovered that the tip of a Polymag separates just beyond the point of impact.
If the Nosler will indeed aid in expansion, I'd definitely use them, provided they aren't too heavy.

According to a review on the Crosman website on the 145 gr. Nosler there was NO expansion.... so regardless of why the tip is there, is doesn't appear to be helping with that....

Well, if it's more aerodynamic, more retained velocity, flatter trajectory, and highly accurate . . .

what can a plastic round tip do that a lead round tip can't if expansion is irrelevant

I believe that, the lead they are using in their current prototypes is either too hard, or the pellet isnt getting enough velocity to "smush" the plastic tip into the rest of the projectile and cause massive deformation of the rest of the lead. The entire purpose of the "ballistic tip" was,... to "give" a little while aiding in initial penetration, then allowing the rest of the pellet to fold up on impact and turn into a sharp lead pancake. If these pellets are not deforming at all, then they are not doing their job. I too would much rather prefer something that is, as accurate, and as reliable, but cheaper then the fancy plastic tipped noslers. Perhaps they will change the formula in the .22 and .25 calibers since we are not putting out .38 special pistol ammo muzzle energy with out 22's and 25's. i am willing to be they if they softened up the pellets a bit with a higher lead content and less antimony, tin, or other alloy junk, these babys will out preform predators on ballistic coefficients alone! we will ahve to wait and see. i was hoping to get my hands on some at the shot show to "test out" for them, haha, no such luck.
