It's not uncommon for hard impacts to push up some metal around them (it has to go somewhere, of course) in this way. Some coins look like they have little volcanoes on them this way.

Long ago I used silver dollars as rifle targets. My little .22LR rounds at 300 feet just made a dent, nothing "volcanic."

Well, if you had instead hit them with a hammer and nail, you'd probably have seen a different result. My .22LR rounds weren't sharply pointed, nor made of steel.
