Safety of plated vs FMJ bullets Login/Join

While practicing for USPSA at my house I've noticed some barely deformed FMJ bullets laying where I shoot from and I wondered if I changed over to plated if they would be more likely to disintegrate. Right now I shoot standard velocity FMJ 9mm bullets at AR Steel.

I've never seen a "barely deformed" bullet that impacted steel, regardless of whether it was jacketed, plated, or polymer-coated. Is it possible that the bullets you found were misses that impacted your berm instead?

Are the bullets bouncing back from your berm/bullet trap?
