Ballistic tip bullets are made in the same fashion as hollow-point bullets and spitzer bullets, and they are designed to perform with the advantages of both bullet types. The tip of the bullet is made of plastic, which is driven into the bullet on impact, causing it to expand or fragment the same way a hollow-point bullet would.
