Re: ring around the tip
If I understand correctly you don't have a problem if the ring is "near" the tip of the bullet (ogive). What you don't want is your die(seating stem) pushing on the "absolute" tip or point of the bullet. That sometimes happens with VLD bullets. If that is the case you can send a couple bullets and the die to the die MFG and have it(Seating stem) made to work with the VLDs. I have to get this done with a Redding die of mine. It contacts 150 gr VLDs at the tip and not the ogive of the bullet.
