Oh, and the time to do it......
"these tips" ???
Someone needs to come up with other choices! And that isn't easy, or inexpensive or non-time consuming. I know!
One tip fits all isn't the best solution to boosting bc. Fitting Corbin's AL tips replaces heavier lead and jacket material aluminum. The smaller the caliber the more heavier material with lighter material.
My bc boost efforts (successful ones
) were with a brass point with a press fit stepped shank into Nosler Accubonds and Ballistic Tips. Base of the point is 0.182" and a meplate of 0.030"
Brass is a bit heavier than aluminum resulting 130/140/150 retipped being nearly 9 grains heavier.
Also $0.85 each is a bit much. One of us had some made and ended up with a $0.77 each cost which in my opinion is also too steep for the typical LR shooter.
Having said that if one of you "Sharks
" chips in $15,000.00 I get you more brass tips/points than could ever be use of a specific design. That's the best quote I could get
However, I haven't given up. . .
