Does it exist? In like a copper jacket?

Only plated, not real jacketed.

The military made some jacketed .22LR rifle rounds - for what purpose I'm not sure, perhaps for the old, silenced .22's that spec ops have. I read about it in Precision Shooting or The Accurate Rifle - there was a big article about the evolution of the .22 bullet called "A Brass Cup, A Pinch of powder, A Lump of Lead."

Scouts Out!

where would one purchase such plated .22's?

I use Winchester X22LR in my Ruger Mk 22/45. It's a "plated" 40gr. RN. The indoor range I shoot at doesn't allow rounds that have bullets with exposed lead.
