I wanted to ask what is the difference between these bullets & the Radically Invasive Projectile bullets?

Thanks for reaching out Lisa! This cartridge's more traditional JHP has a lead core and copper jacket. Its nose cavity causes the bullet to widen out as it meets with resistance from soft tissue, thus creating a wider wound channel while simultaneously exerting more of its energy outward, which deals more damage than a simple non-expanding bullet like the FMJ.
For the most part, the outline of an expanded JHP is pretty round – there may be some pointy projections, but not exaggeratedly so. The RIP bullet, on the other hand, is essentially eight blade-like pieces all lined up in a cylinder to make the shape of the bullet. As the RIP enters soft tissue its blades fan outward and then split apart to gouge multiple separate wound channels into soft tissue. It's quite a devastating terminal effect!
This short video will give you a better idea of what the RIP does: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVHcF07DHJg&ab_channel=CeoWorldTv
This short video demonstrates the JHP in action pretty well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y8Q6bEMJHpY&ab_channel=GunDestruction
