    Usually the tips do get damaged once you fire them, either into a safe back stop or an animal. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] JK

    USe polymer tipped bullets(i.e.BT's or Accubonds). Sounds like the recoil is slamming your lead tipped bullets into the front of the magazine. McMillan has an ingenious fix for their 50 caliber magazines in which there is a groove for the rim to ride on that keeps the bullets from slamming forward on recoil.

    MMM ,
    Common problem with heavy kickers . May want to get a rail soldered into the mag box on either side immediately ahead of the point where the shoulder of the case sits . This stops the cases sliding forward under recoil .
