Bullet tipping die

Bullet Tipping Die: Improve Ballistic Coefficient (BC) and consistency.


Bullet Tipping Die Features:

- 303 stainless steel construction
- Fine .0005Ē adjustment increments
- Caliber sleeve and tipping punch are hand fit for very close tolerance
- Knurled adjuster stem
- Oversize stem lock
- Caliber sleeves available for .22/6mm/6.5mm/7mm/.308/.338
- Tipping punches available for different bullet profiles
- Positive stop bullet pusher bottoms on Bullet Tipping Die body

  (The same die adjustments will work in any press regardless of make or condition)
- Tipping punch shapes are developed In CAD.
- Tipping punch height adjustments allow for full bullet support prior to the tipping process.
- Floating caliber sleeve compensates for any misalignment in the reloading press.
- All critical parts are machined on high tolerance Swiss CNC machines.


The Bullet Tipping Die is made up of the following three components, which vary based on the caliber/bullet you will be tipping. To order a complete Bullet Tipping Die, select the three components that are needed for your bullet tipping needs.

1.  Tipping Die Body - Same for all calibers/bullets
2.  Caliber Sleeve - Specific to the calibers you will be tipping.

3.  Tipping Punch - Specific to the bullets you will be tipping.

The following chart shows the pricing for each component.  To determine which tipping punch is needed, see our Tipping Punch Guide.

Bullet Tipping Die History:

Our Bullet Tipping Die has been a work in progress since the summer of 2005.  It began when I was looking at meplat trimmers. Meplat trimmers uniform a bulletís Ballistic Coefficient (BC), however, they also reduce the Ballistic Coefficient (BC) of the bullet.  My goal was to uniform the bullet and increase the Ballistic Coefficient (BC).


With a little investigation I found that there was already a tool on the market that did just that. It was the LT-1-SC Tip Closing Die from Corbin Bullet Swaging that they have been selling since 1975, with instructions on how to close up the point of an open tip match bullet. After contacting Dave from Corbin, he sent me some dies for testing. Due to some very promising ballistic increases, I knew the key to a bullet tipping die was in the shape of the punch used to tip the bullet. Our tipping die punches have special proprietary shapes that give you the most tip closure and blend into the main ogive with the least amount of pressure, so it doesnít distort the bullet.

The trick to designing the Bullet Tipping Die was developing methods and tooling to form the shape in the tipping punch. Hundreds of hours were spent developing special tool cutting jigs and fixtures to form the cutting tools used to cut the special proprietary shapes in the bullet tipping punches.  With these tools and methods, we can build tipping punches that will fit specific bullet profiles for the greatest Ballistic Coefficient (BC) gains.

With the help of a well respected 1000yd benchrest shooter, we have developed the current Bullet Tipping Die.



For the best results, all bullets should be meplat trimmed and sorted by bearing surface length before tipping. It is not uncommon to see 3 - 4 different bearing surface length bullets in the same lot, with a few that canít even be used.

Another benefit to meplat trimming bullets prior to tipping is that they will start straighter in the tipping punch than bullets that have not been meplat trimmed. This is because the bullet tips are more uniform and straight.
