New Bullet Pointing Die


I have come up with a way to close down the hollow point of match bullets and have it available for sale. I shoot long range highpower, and appreciate better bullet performance just as you do.

A quick summary is that we are closing the meplat of the bullet down to about half its original diameter and getting a BC increase of about .035-.040 with bullets typical for long range use (VLDs and Matchking types). This is giving us a flatter trajectory by about a minute or more at 1000 yards. The wind performance is about 5% better than bullets right out of the box.

We have not had the opportunity to do any significant testing to see how terminal performance is affected. Logically, we might assume that expansion may be slowed by the smaller meplat. Some testing done by others showed faster expansion because this smaller meplat folds in on itself. The take home message here is that we simply don't know yet.

More information is available at our website www.whiddengunworks.net or call 229 686 1911 Tues-Sat.

Re: New Bullet Pointing Die

Does pointing the bullet have any negative effect on terminal expansion for long range hunting?
