    I'll be in touch and keep you posted.

    There is certainly a need of ballistic tips here in the states for all us bullet makers and you are the only one I know of that has shown anything to offer, it's just that home made bullet hobbies is kind of slow now with all the supply of reloading components and ammo we have in stock here in the states now with new president in place.

    As you can imagine I have a lot of irons in the fire with all my bullet projects and customers. New projects come slow for me but they are always in the works.

    I have some of the large corbin tips with the .250 diameter. They are pretty big, work well.... no.... work perfect on my 50 BMG bullets but if there is a chance for something in between the big corbin and your current little tip (that is perfect for 22 cal) that would be great.

    I can't imagine you are going to have the same small base that the corbin has to seat into the core, maybe a little bigger in diameter with the plastic, yes?

    M.A.D are you working with the same print I sent you a few months ago?

    If so, would you like me to work with BT Sniper and make sure it’s a tip that will work well with his bullets?

    Valonor and BT , my suggestion is the both of you work out what you believe is actually commercially viable, a Tip that will work across a few calibres in the more common Ogives....
    And get back to me with a design, id want something for 30 to 358 and 375 to 50 bmg ( i was working on that design you gave me for the big tip for 375 to 50 )

    Anyone want to be the agent , lots of 100,000...

    I forwarded the PDF of the print for the larger tip to BT Sniper. I’m ready to jump on it when ever he is.

    Just took a look at the drawings! I got to say there is potential for something awesome here!

    Who makes those tips? They almost look like a Corbin tip but his are Steel and the shanks have three grooves (at least mine do).

    Corbin's largest tips are Aluminum, at least the ones I received a couple years ago.

    I too am curious about Blaster's tips there. Shank diameter looks bigger, I like!

    I could make steel or aluminium tips, But material cost here is a killer... And freight to America would kill the project... Like making Jackets, We can make Jackets to reasonable accuracy or any size, but material cost and freight is a killer...
    For the life of me, If i was able to move to the USA, Id be making Jackets, Not J4/Sierra accuracy, but for commercial hobby use...

    Anyway, When you guys come up with a final design, i will be ready to roll in about a month..

    Is there a tip for the BT Simple set?
    NFA = Not Freaking American

    It would be less disrespectful to burn the flag than to put a thin blue line through the middle of it.
