A hollow-point bullet is an expanding bullet. It is used for controlled penetration, where over-penetration could cause collateral damage (such as aboard an aircraft). In target shooting, they are used for greater accuracy due to the larger meplat. Although a pointed bullet has a higher ballistic coefficiency (BC), it's also more sensitive to bullet harmonic characteristics and wind deflection, thus making hollow point bullets consistently more accurate and predictable.
Plastic-tipped bullets are a type of (rifle) bullet meant to confer the aerodynamic advantage of the spitzer bullet (for example, see very-low-drag bullet) and the stopping power of hollow point bullets.
