I did not sleep well last night and I woke up early. I figured I might as well find something quiet to do in my reloading room. So I started pointing bullets. The goal is to make the hollow point on match bullets smaller and more uniform. This makes the ballistic coefficient more uniform and it is one more variable I can control. Inside 500-600 yards it doesent make much difference, but it cant hurt and might help. I use the Whidden pointing die. Works like a charm. http://www.6mmbr.com/bulletpointer.html Sierra has started doing this to some of their new bullets like the 308 125gn and 155gn bullets and 6mm 115gn bullets. I would guess that within a few years all their Matchkings come pointed. I did 2,500 123 gn 6.5mm bullets and 500 Berger 300gn 338 Lapua bullets. I can do about 1200-1500 an hour. Boring as hell, but easy. Pointed vs non pointed. A 300gn Berger 338 Hybrid bullet next to a 55gn FMJ... Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
