Check out Dummy Bullet (https://www.dummybullet.com/).

This gentlemen sells bullets that look like bullets, but have a hole in the side. Excellent quality the few times I've ordered from him.

Correct, but this is a moot point. If I compress a load of titegroup and smash a 150gr FMJ onto it- I'm going to have a bad day. No matter what cartridge, follow data and you'll be fine
