Never had a problem with core spitting.
We played about with how much of the tip to snip off. Too much and it effected accuracy quite a bit. Too little and the odd one would not expand.
In the end we would snip off just enough to see a good amount of lead, then make a second snip at 90 degrees to the first to make the point look a bit more even and square.
We got them cheap because some shooters were buying ex-mil ammo, pulling the bullets and replacing them with soft points for use on pigs. We were happy to collect their rejects and use them for the cost of a six pack of beer.
A lot of the gun shops also sold them very cheap.
