meplat trimming or bullet pointing

Has any one tried the whidden bullet pointing die's ? The way i under stand it whidden pointing die's function is to reduce meplat diameter makes a sharper point better bc less wind drift.Where as meplat trimming make the bullet tip larger less bc increases drop in bullet and more wind drift.I also would like to know if anybody used it with 338 smk for really long range 1300 + yards. thanks joe
