Less lead less impact.

Unless they have lengthened the round it would weigh less and not have the same cross sectional density and thus would not penetrate as much on a hard target. Making the rounds lighter would also affect ballistic efficiency, shortening the range.

The course corrections looked rather abrupt on the video and not quite feasible for a ballistic object but hard to judge given no range or view point parallax info.
