Why teflon tip bullets?

Some bullets are coated with Teflon to protect the barrel from excessive wear and fouling. Other coatings for bullets include molybdenum disulfide, wax, and other proprietary films. Some bullets have a plastic tip or plugs and are generically called "poly-tips" and people sometimes mistake this for Teflon. The plugs initiate rapid expansion by acting like a piston which gets driven into a hollow cavity in the bullet. Such poly tipped bullets are commonly used for hunting small or thin skinned animals. One popular type of poly tipped bullet is the Nosler Ballistic Tip.
