    There are two types of bullets that could be called
    protected point.

    One has a polymer tip and the other has no lead beyond
    the jacket(no lead tip).

    The polymer tipped bullets are normaly thin jacketed
    and expand fast. The other has a heavy jacket and
    by removing the lead tip it doesn't get beat up in the
    magazine or when loaded from the magazine.

    Most of the jacketed dangerous game bullets are constructed
    this way to prevent damage in the mag from recoil.

    Years ago before polymer tipped bullets we would trim the lead tip off to be able to seat farther out (closer to the
    lands) and still work in the magazine.And they shot and
    performed well on game.

    Velocity and the type of game your hunting determines what type of bullet to use.

    woodleigh makes good dangerous game bullets so I would
    think there 338s should be very good performers.
