I do not think Speer Gold Dots are *plated*.
Gold Dots are plated. It is a heavy plating, but they take a lead core and plate it with copper. Federal uses plated bullets for rifle loads as well. That is an even heavier plating. Most of the Federal rifle loads are not plated, but the "Fusion" line is.
