Does the lead in the rear of the Partition melt when fired out of a rifle?

Because the rear lead core of a Partition bullet is only exposed to the extremely hot temperatures of burning powder for such a short amount of time, it does not have enough time to melt. It only takes 1/15000th of a second for a bullet to travel through a 24” barrel based on a bullet traveling 3000 fps.
