    Bonded means that the copper/brass jacket of the bullet is electrochemically bonded to the lead core. Some hollow points have a habit of having the jacket separate from the core when it enters a soft target like ballistic gel. What you end up with is a small slug of lead that penetrates more than the expanded jacket. This creates a smaller permanent wound channel than a bonded bullet that keeps the massive core (gives penetration) and the jacket (weaker part that expands) together.

    BJHP = Bonded JHP or Brass JHP (a la Remington Golden Saber).
