Are you asking me? If you are, copper plated is not "copper jacketed". Plating is a chemical process, copper jacketed is a thin piece of copper molded around the lead bullet..22WMR, .17HMR and the majority of center fire ammunition is copper jacketed. Copper jacketing is primarily done due to the velocity of the bullet to prevent heat generated in the barrel due to the speed to prevent the lead from melting and quickly leading the barrel. Hope that clears it up.
